A new addition to our popular range of Tree Lilies. Lily 'Pretty Woman' brings a pure white bloom and a soft sweet fragrance to our collection of towering giant lilies. The stems get taller each year as these hardy lily bulbs return in spring to put on an elegant display of summer flowers. Thick sturdy stems require little staking - and will take some cutting! Best left to enjoy in the garden rather than cutting for indoor use - we doubt you'll have a vase big enough to display them! Set out in sunny borders or place in large containers on the patio to enjoy the scent. No matter where you place them, their fragrant perfume will fill the garden through summer. Height: 180cm (71"). 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 oriental 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.
