Lilium Child In Time
Pack of 3

Lilium Child in Time (Lilium hybrid) is a gorgeous pink flower featuring petals of soft pink with a deeper pink eye.

AOA Liliums are a sensational new release! A triple cross between Asiatic and Oriental Liliums and then crossed back to an Asiatic, these colourful upwards facing flowers take all the best attributes from their parents and combine them into a beautiful and vigorous hybrid. Often fragrant, AOA Liliums are pleasantly scented and not at all overpowering making them a delightful addition to gardens, pots and vases.

Liliums require a well drained soil; heavy or clay soils are completely unsuitable as the bulbs will run the risk of rotting. Protection from strong winds is recommended as their stems and flowers are easily damaged. Liliums prefers a full sun position however in warmer climates some shelter from the hot afternoon sun will help flowers last longer.

Liliums are ideal for growing in pots and containers; for best results in pots always use a potting mix for bulbs and be sure to fertilise on a regular basis.

Supplied as dormant bulbs.

  • Express Post: If you require your order to be sent Express Post, please call our office and we will arrange a quote.  Please Note: Quarantine orders cannot be sent using Express Post; our experience is that it will actually delay your order due to the inspection process required for entry into these states.
  • Order Split Fee: Some items may be delayed due to climatic or growing habits prevent them from being harvested at the time of being offered for purchase.  You will be offered a choice to wait until all items on your order are available or to receive what is currently available for an additional freight charge of $5.00.
  • We continue to maintain the simplest form of postage costs for the large variety of products we range, however in occasional circumstances of oversized orders and/or delivery location, the cost of freight can significantly impact delivery of an order therefore we reserve the right to refuse the order or contact the customer to discuss freight options and pricing.

Orders containing products from two different seasons (eg Rose or spring bulb pre-orders) that require separate deliveries will incur two delivery charges at the relevant rates (unless a free freight offer applies). A $5.00 Quarantine Inspection Surcharge applies in addition to the Delivery Charge for orders delivered to Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia due to the increased complexity of quarantine requirements.

As quarantine inspections apply to each delivery, 2 quarantine charges will apply where orders contain products from different seasons.   *Please note that if you order large items (eg Patio, Standard or Weeping Roses, Fruit Trees) you must specify a street address for the delivery address. StarTrack Express generally do not deliver to PO Boxes or RSD addresses so your order will be held until a suitable address is obtained. In rural areas, StarTrack may deliver to physical addresses such as general stores that act as Australia Post agencies but we suggest you check with them first. Where ”Free Delivery” vouchers apply to an order, details of the voucher should be entered in the “Your message to us” field. Orders (except Pre-orders) are normally despatched within 7-14 working days from the time of ordering during busy periods. Delivery times may be extended during peak periods (typically following the release of the latest catalogue), extended public holidays, if extreme weather conditions are not suitable for live plant transport or as detailed in the product description.
Individual items may be back-ordered to avoid delaying the delivery of other items. Please allow additional delivery time for orders to Tasmania, Northern Territory and Western Australia due to quarantine restrictions.

 

Please note: Some orders may not be possible to parts of Australia due to quarantine and some items may carry unique delivery charges. Check full delivery policy.

Common Name: LILIUM
Also known as: Longiflorum – Christmas Lily, November Lily, Oriental -. Florist Lily
Botanical Name: Lilium spp
Family Name: Liliaceae
Plant Type: Fleshy Bulb
Size: 70 cm to 120cm
Planting Time: Winter to Spring
Planting Width: 20–40cm Depth: 10-20cm
Flowering: Summer
Positioning: Full Sun to Part Shade
General Information: There are many varieties of lilies; LA Hybrids, Oriental, Asiatic, and Longflorum. All have long lasting flowers.
Soil: Well drained, friable and moist. If growing in pots use a potting mix specifically for bulbs.
Watering: Responds well to generous watering in summer.
Fertilising: Prepare the soil with well-rotted animal manure or a complete fertiliser before planting. Mulch well to keep soil cool and moist. Liquid fertilising once plants are setting buds is beneficial to keep lower foliage green. Top dress with fertiliser in late winter.
Pruning: It is best to remove old flower heads once flowers fade to promote bulb growth. Cut down to ground level once foliage has died off completely. Bulbs can be left in the ground to naturalise or lifted and separated. Replant without delay.
Dislikes: Being moved, wet feet.
Pests: Aphids but generally pest resistant.
✔ Ideal for pots, excellent cut flowers.
Tips: Plant immediately after purchase and do not allow the bulbs to dry out. Oriental lilies prefer a cooler, more sheltered position and may require staking and protection from hot winds. Double Tiger Lily lilium lancifolium requires
the same conditions as other liliums except this one grows to a height of 1.5 m and is a little less fussy about soil type. If growing in pots, make sure the pot is 200 mm minimum. Place no more than 3 bulbs per pot, and make sure the bulbs
are leaning slightly inwards to encourage plants to support each other. Grow outside in a sunny aspect and pots can be brought inside once flowering. After flowering, or when picking for cut flowers, cut the plant to about half way down the
stem to enable the plant to develop the bulb for next year’s flowers.

Legend


Establish which coloured region you live in and then consider the varieties listed as typically suited to that area. The Australian Climate Guide map is intended as a guide only as climatic conditions vary between specific locations. Factors such as local altitude, wind and the proximity of hills, mountains and bodies of water can cause variations from the generalised climate map. Note also that although a plant may be listed as suitable for a particular region, it may still require protection from extremes such as frost or strong winds. You should also consider its requirements for sun, shade and water.

Remember that you can often extend the range of plants that you can grow by creating micro-climates within your garden. Planting under trees, beside brick walls or in the shelter of a building, on high or low points in the garden can all have an effect. Even planting by a pond or surrounded by rocks can be used to advantage. Part of the joy of gardening can be experimenting and nothing is more pleasing that achieving success with a plant that is not usually seen in your area.

The map is based on Australian Bureau of Meteorology 30 year climatology data from 1961-1990. The zones are based on both temperature and humidity:

  • Tropical – hot humid summer .
  • Mild Tropical – warm humid summer
  • Semi-arid – hot dry summer, cold winter
  • Arid – hot dry summer, cold winter
  • Temperate – warm summer, cool winter
  • Cool – mild-warm summer, cool winter
