Description

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").

  • Collection comprises:
  • Tree Lily® ‘Yellow Rocket’ - Silken yellow petals fade to creamy white edges.
  • Tree Lily® ‘Starburst’ - Shimmering gold, perfumed blooms are flushed with crimson red.
  • Tree Lily® ‘Pink Explosion’ - Sumptuous backward curving, pink petals and an exquisite fragrance to match.

How to Grow
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 tree 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.

When do tree lilies flower?

Best planted in April, tree lilies flower in July and August, producing impressive, fragrant blooms.

Where should I plant tree lilies?

Plant in a sunny, sheltered position where soil is shaded. Tree lilies prefer a moist, well-fed and well-drained neutral to acid soil. Plant bulbs around 15cm apart, at a depth approximately three times their own height. Deep planting helps to protect from heat damage in warmer months.

What special care do tree lilies need?

If you're planting in containers, use a loam-based compost. Deadhead faded blooms at the base of the flower where they join the stem to prevent seed pods developing. Mulch with compost or well-rotted manure in spring to protect the bulbs. When you're cutting flowers, be sure to leave a third of the stem intact until it yellows in autumn.

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. Divide and repot container grown lilies into fresh compost every other year. Caution: All parts of Oriental lilies are toxic to cats.
