Plantain Lily Growing and Maintenance Tips

Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring. Divide every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
