Distinctive and interesting mix of colours with ivory-white open petals, purple speckled inners and prominent lime green anthers with orange stamens, this lovely Asiatic Lily can be in flower as early as June. Asiatic, Oriental and Trumpet lilies are often grown for their flamboyant colours and fragrant blooms. The lily bulbs can be planted in spring and will be in flower during high summer bringing elegance, colour, form and height to borders, patio pots and containers. Height 80cms. The Oriental and Trumpet lilium varieties have the added bonus of an intense and heady fragrance. They attract bees, pollinating insects, butterflies and moths. Asiatic lilies are dependable perennials that are ideally suited to growing in pots. They originate from several areas of Asia and have the greatest range of colours, flower shapes and heights due to the hybrids that have been bred over recent years. They have the longest bloom time and can be in flower earlier and longer than other lilies. They will happily grow in an alkaline soil or coir based compost and will readily multiply. They generally do not have a scent, but some varieties do. Excellent to use as cut flowers.
