Oriental Liliums

Oriental Lilies are tall, beautiful and highly fragrant making them a must for a summer garden full of colour. With beautiful flowers in various shades of pink and white, pure white, gold and white, and crimson, these bulbs produce five to six large blooms per stem with an intense sweet fragrance.

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.
