The first ever “plant of the week” from Our Jupiter Garden is the African Lily; also known as the Lily of the Nile. The African Lily has proven to be an excellent long-term addition to our garden.
The African Lily prefers full sun to part shade. When planting in full sun make sure to provide extra water, however once established this lily is fairly drought tolerant. The lily can be grown from seed or it can be propagated through division. The key is not to divide the plant until it is mature. Once the plant is divided you cannot ensure a bloom the following year.
