East meets West with Lily 'Fusion'. Our go-to lily specialists have done the impossible, crossing the Far Eastern Lillium longiflorum with L. Pardanalinum from the USA, to bring gardeners the best of both in a single stunning specimen. You can now enjoy the exotic beauty of giant pardalinum blooms on sturdier stronger stems, for the best ever garden performance. This hardy lily will grow to 1m (3ft) in the first season, with no need for staking. How tall it will grow once established we are still to find out - this stunning lily is so new we won't know the eventual height until next year! What we do know is that bulbs divide freely in the garden to give you an ever expanding display of unusual lily blooms that will be the envy of the street! Height: 100cm+ (33"+). Spread: 45cm(18").
Feed and water oriental lily bulbs regularly throughout the growing season, keeping them moist at all times. Deadhead faded blooms at the base of the flower where they join the stem to prevent the development of seed pods. When cutting Longiflorum lily flowers for indoor arrangements, it is important to leave a third of the stem intact in order to feed the bulb for the following year.
After flowering leave the stems intact until they begin to yellow in autumn. Reduce watering and move containers of lilies to a cool, frost free position over winter. Lilies grown in borders can be lifted, cleaned and stored for the winter, however in mild areas most lilies should survive outdoors provided that the soil is not too wet. A mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost should be applied in spring. Divide and repot container grown lilies into fresh compost every other year.
