Year-Round Care for Your Easter Lily
Delight in the beauty of your Easter Lily all year round with our comprehensive guide to seasonal care. This radiant perennial, known for its trumpet-shaped flowers and rich fragrance, is a springtime favorite, but its allure doesn't have to end with the season. With the right care, your Easter Lily can thrive throughout the year and bloom again next spring.
Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal, and your Easter Lily is no exception. As it bursts into bloom, ensure it has a cool, bright spot to call home.

As summer arrives, your Easter Lily will have finished blooming. This is the time to cut the flower stalk down to soil level. Don't worry, this isn't the end! The plant continues to gather sunlight through its leaves, storing up energy for next year's bloom. For more perennial care tips, visit our Season-by-Season Guide to Keeping Your Garden Thriving.
When fall rolls around, you'll notice the leaves of your Easter Lily beginning to yellow. This is a natural part of the plant's life cycle and not a cause for concern. It's time to reduce watering and let nature take its course. Our article Long-Lived Perennials: Plant Once, Enjoy for Years to Come provides more insights into the fascinating life cycles of perennials.
Finally, winter is a time for rest. Your Easter Lily enters a dormant stage, needing a cool, dark place and little to no water. When late winter arrives, you can repot the lily in fresh soil and begin watering again, preparing for another beautiful spring bloom.
