Tree Lily® 'Yellow Rocket'

Lilium

 Customer Rating
  • Incredible Tree Lilies®
  • 8ft tall in as little as 2 years
  • One bulb produces up to 30 trumpet blooms

Beautiful silken yellow petals fade to their creamy white edges and form these exquisitely scented blooms. 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 as little as two years. One single bulb of Tree Lily® 'Yellow Rocket' 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").
