How to grow Triteleia or Triplet lilies in your garden

Triplet lilies are perennial plants. They are commonly called ‘Pretty Face’ or ‘Wild Hyacinth.’ Blooms of triplet lily plants can be light blue, lavender, or white. Reaching 15 to 20 inches (38-51 cm.), planting triplet lilies among plants that flower earlier adds a splash of color around foliage that should remain in the landscape until it yellows. The blooms will last two to three weeks with the right planting and triplet lily care.
Triteleia is known for attracting bees, beneficial insects, butterflies and other pollinators. It has nectar/pollen rich flowers.
Triteleia has no toxic effects reported.
Triteleia is a spring-blooming cormous perennial grown for its umbels of funnel-shaped flowers that appear above leafless stems.

  • Growing up to 15-18 in. high (37-45 cm), this beauty will naturalize in optimum growing conditions and will come back year after year!
  • Easily grown in light, sandy, fertile, well-drained soils in full sun or part shade. Tolerates clay soil. In cold winter areas, apply a layer of mulch to protect this plant. For best results, provide the plant with consistent moisture spring to early summer; however, maintain a dry soil after blooming until the following spring. Drought tolerant.
  • Virtually disease-free and pest-free.
  • Stunning in beds, borders, rock gardens, cottage gardens or city gardens. For best visual impact, plant in groups (at least 10 bulbs). Long-lasting cut flowers with a great vase life.
  • Propagate by separating corms when dormant.
