Tree Lily® 'Pretty Woman'

Lilium, Oriental Lily, Tree Lily

Hardy Bulb

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").

Ideal For:
patio, scented gardens, exotic garden, cut flower garden
Flowering Period:
July, August
Position:
sun or semi shade

Oriental lilies prefer a moist, free draining, neutral to acid soil that is rich in organic matter. Prior to planting, add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil to give your lilies the best start. When growing lilies in containers, use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2. Lily bulbs should be planted at a depth of approximately 3 times their own height and 15cm (6") apart. Planting deeply helps to protect the bulb during particularly hot periods. Choose a sheltered, sunny position where lilies will grow with their heads in the sun and their roots in the shade.

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.

  1. Very disappointing.

    By Valerie Hart 28-08-2016

    Very disappointing. The tree lillies were pink and only one flower on each plant. The picture on your website is mis-leading. Or I have been sent the wrong ones. Mrs V Hart. 28.8.16

    These lilies were at least well over 5 feet with the most delicate perfume and had several flowers on each stem.
