Simply plant, your LA and 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 appreciated afternoon shade in warmer climates.
Keep your 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. LA Liliums are a cross between Asiatic and Christmas Lilies, they have a slight fragrance and more trumpet shape. Asiatic Liliums do not have a fragrance so are perfect for gardeners after colour but no heady aroma.
