Outward facing, strawberry red blooms. The buds have a strong pink flush, which extends the colourful floral show. These hulking bulbs can produce 25 flowers in the right conditions. Each with a strong perfume.
Sumo Lilies are the biggest and the best Lilium bulbs on offer. The bulbs are huge, which means you can expect plenty of flowers from the get go. Why are they so big? Because they have been grown by the cut flower industry and once they reach a certain size, they actually have too many flowers! This is not so good in bunches but fantastic in the garden.
Sumo Oriental Lilies add glamour and fragrance to the garden. They are also tough, and able to withstand our hot summers.
Plant a sunny spot with shade from the hot afternoon sun. Water to establish and keep moist in active growth for best results.
Ensure you fertilise your Sumo Oriental Lilies well this will make certain of the best blooms. Fertilise when you first see growth, then again as the flowers are fading.
Gorgeous in the garden and perfect for cut flowers too.
