This is one charming lily that is sure to sell out! The deep petals will add some drama and contrast to your garden. Lilium ‘Black Charm’ is the darkest Asiatic available.
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 Asiatic Liliums are hardy cultivars with bright, upward to outward facing flowers. The stems average 4-8 blooms with numbers increasing as the bulbs establish. They also make excellent cut flowers.
Plant Sumo Asiatic Lilies in a sunny spot. Water to establish and keep moist in active growth for best results.
Ensure you fertilise your Sumo Asiatic Lilies well this will make certain of the best blooms. Fertilise when you first see growth, then again as the flowers are fading.
In warmer climates, if you grow your Sumo Asiatic Liliums in part shade or morning sun the flowers last longer.
Asiatic Lilies will take 10-14 weeks to flower, faster in warm weather.
