Tree Lily® Collection

Lilium, Oriental Lily

  • 8ft tall in 2 years
  • One bulb produces up to 30 trumpet blooms
  • Fantastic, sweet and fresh fragrance
 Customer Rating

Tree lilies® are the breathtaking result of years of painstaking breeding; these incredible varieties of oriental lily can grow as tall as 2.5m (8ft) in two years. One single Tree Lily® bulb can produce up to thirty 20cm (8”) trumpet blooms and will take on a shrub-like appearance over the years.

The sturdy stalks are almost 5cm (2”) thick, so they won't need supporting and the foliage remains lush all season. It couldn't be easier. Grow them through shrubs in borders, against walls and fences, or in large pots for the patio, and let them look after themselves. Height: 2.5m (8’). Spread: 60cm (24”).

  • Tree Lily® ‘Yellow Rocket’ - Silken yellow petals fade to creamy white edges.
