Hot orange petals with maroon to black spotting across the blooms. The spotting adds nice texture and depth to the bloom.
Real conversation pieces in the garden, these Matisse Asiatics are avant garde Lilies of distinction! The petals look like they have been painted by a master. They were so named for the Artist who wrote himself into history by breaking all the laws of colour to create genius.
Matisse Asiatic Liliums are a triumph of modern breeding techniques; marrying the handsome, old fashioned spotted Lilies with today’s bright colours and strong disease resistance.
Matisse Asiatic Liliums have little to no fragrance so are perfect for gardeners after colour without the heady aroma many lilies have.
Simply plant, your Matisse Asiatic Lilies, fertilise and enjoy. Leave them in the ground to establish and they will bring you years of joy. In fact, the longer Liliums have to establish the blooms they produce. Choose a humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny location. They will appreciate afternoon shade in warmer climates.
Keep your Matisse Asiatic Lilies moist while in growth and fertilise at the start of the season and again as the flowers are finishing. Mulch over the summer to help maintain moisture levels in the soil.
They will take 10-14 weeks to flower. Matisse Asiatic Liliums are a cross between Asiatic and Christmas Lilies.
