STOLEN! SOMEONE HAS STOLEN THIS ENTIRE TURKS-CAP LILY PLANT FROM ALONG OUR BOARDWALK

Updated: Aug 17, 2023

Several Turk's-cap lilies (Lilium superbum) are in bloom right now along the stream-side boardwalk loop. Turk's-caps are the largest of our native lilies with up to 40 flowers counted on a single stalk.

Turk's-caps are a perennial wildflower that prefers humus-rich moist to wet soils that are well drained, but they can tolerate average garden soil that is consistently moist. Turk's-caps will thrive in full sun to partial shade.

A number of years ago, while canoeing on the pond, we spied a Turk's-cap growing in the marsh way down at the other end. We were unable to get close enough to measure it, but I estimate it to have been about 8 feet tall and it was loaded with flowers.


Enjoy our wildflowers, but please take only pictures.
