    • To humans

      The Lilium Pink Perfection Group, commonly known as the lily, is not highly toxic to humans. However, ingesting parts of the lily, especially in large quantities, can cause mild digestive upset, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. It is rare for severe poisoning or life-threatening symptoms to occur in humans from ingesting parts of a lily. If you suspect poisoning, it is important to seek medical advice.

    • To pets

      Lilies, including those of the Lilium Pink Perfection Group, are highly toxic to cats and can result in severe kidney damage or failure if ingested. Even small amounts of the plant, such as a few petals or leaves, pollen, or water from a vase holding the flowers can cause lethargy, vomiting, and a loss of appetite. Without prompt veterinary treatment, symptoms can progress to kidney failure, which can be fatal. Dogs are less susceptible to lily poisoning, but ingestion can still cause mild to moderate gastrointestinal upset. It is crucial for pet owners to keep lilies out of reach of their pets, especially cats, and to seek immediate veterinary care if ingestion is suspected.

  • water dropWater

    The Oriental Lily, commonly known as the Pink Perfection Lily, thrives when watered deeply and thoroughly, allowing the soil to become slightly dry between waterings. Aim for at least 1 inch of water weekly, and during hot, dry spells, increase watering frequency to maintain evenly moist soil. It's crucial not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. Assess soil moisture by feeling the top inch of soil; if it's dry, it's time to water again. Watering with approximately 1 gallon of water per week is typically sufficient, but adjust for rainfall and temperature conditions.

  • sunLight

    The Pink Perfection Lily requires a location where it receives full sun to part shade for optimal growth. An ideal spot would ensure that it gets at least six hours of direct sunlight daily, though some afternoon shade can be beneficial in extremely hot climates. Avoid placing it in deep shade, as this will hinder its flowering and overall health.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Pink Perfection Lilies thrive in temperatures ranging from 59 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit. The ideal range encourages robust growth and flowering. They can withstand extremes from just above freezing up to about 86 degrees Fahrenheit, but prolonged exposure outside this range can be detrimental to the plant. Protecting the lilies from extreme temperature fluctuations is essential to maintain plant health.

  • scissorsPruning

    Pruning Pink Perfection Lilies is primarily for aesthetic purposes and to remove spent flowers, promoting the growth of new buds and maintaining plant vigor. Deadhead the flowers as they fade, and after flowering is complete, cut back the stems to just above a healthy set of leaves. Pruning should be done annually, and the best time for this is in late fall or after the first frost to prepare the plant for dormancy.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Lilium Pink Perfection, commonly known as the Pink Perfection lily, begins its life cycle as a bulb, which overwinters underground in colder climates. In spring, shoots emerge from the bulb, developing into a sturdy stem with long, lanceolate leaves. Throughout spring and early summer, the plant continues to grow, reaching up to 6 feet tall for some varieties. By midsummer, trumpet-shaped, fragrant pink flowers bloom at the top of the stem, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies. After pollination, the flowers give way to seed pods if fertilization occurs; these pods will eventually dry and release their seeds, which can germinate to produce new plants. As the growing season ends, the Pink Perfection lily's foliage dies back, and the plant enters dormancy, with the bulb storing energy until the next growth cycle begins.

    • Propogation time

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The most popular method of propagation for the Lilium Pink Perfection, more commonly known as the Pink Perfection Lily, is by dividing its bulbs. This is typically best done in the fall, after the foliage has died back, or in the early spring before new growth begins. To propagate by bulb division, carefully dig up the mature clump of lilies, ensuring to minimize damage to the bulbs and roots. Gently separate the bulbs at the natural division points, being cautious not to tear them apart forcefully. Each section should have at least one bud or stem attached to it. Replant the bulbs immediately, at a depth of around 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 centimeters), in well-draining soil and at a location with sufficient sunlight. Water the newly planted bulbs thoroughly to help them establish in their new locations.
