Generalities Lily of the Incas
The Lily of the Incas develops bulbs or tubers. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. Lily of the Incas isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a red colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 1 m in height.

Exposure Lily of the IncasSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Lily of the Incas in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Lily of the Incas usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.

Watering Lily of the IncasTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks . Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.

Treatments Lily of the Incas
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Lily of the Incas
Grow these perennial plants in a very well drained substratum.
