Lilium Superbum is a showy flower known as Turks Cap Lily, Lily Royal, Turban Lily, American Tiger lily, and Swamp Lily. It is a sub-species of the true lily, or Lilium, the latter native to both central and some eastern parts of North America. Conversely, the Turks Cap Lily is predominantly found in more specific states, as it is a dwindling genus. This would include some parts of Florida, New Hampshire, Arkansas, Missouri, and more north in Alberta. This sub-species of lily is best known for its vibrant colors and the fact that its petals naturally curl behind themselves, creating a sort of crowned appearance, which would explain its name of "Turks Cap," as it resembles a type of hat worn by the early Turkish.
The Lilium superbum tends to grow in considerable sizes, up to three to seven feet in height, with several blooms on each of its stems. Its vibrant color can range from fiery oranges to brighter orange-yellow and may even possess reddish tips to its petals. One way it is distinguished from the similarly appearing "tiger lilies," which are of Asiatic origin, would be through the green star at its center, a trait that the Asiatic "tiger lilies" do not possess. This genus is also, more often than not, much taller in size.
The nectar provided by the lilum superbum will surely attract hummingbirds and other nectar-consuming critters, particularly around July, the month this flower is known to bloom most regularly. They thrive best in soil that is kept consistently moist and often do their best in medium wet soils that are not in an area that would quickly dry out. They easily find places to spread in the wild and create a strong contrast to the greenery of most gardens due to their yellow, orange, and red color set. They are also often spotted, though the number of spots will vary.
