A flashy flower with plenty going for it. The white petals have a central gold bar and deep red freckles. The waxy petals have great substance and stand up to all sorts of weather. The flowers are over 20cm across and great for cutting.
Matisse Oriental Lilies will knock your socks off! With a contemporary twist on old world charm, these spotted beauties are a triumph of modern breeding techniques; marrying the handsome, old fashioned spotted lilies with today’s bright colours and strong disease resistance.
Matisse was a pioneer in modern art. His work broke with convention and took colour to a whole new level. This 'avant-garde' Lilium collection named in his honour pays homage to his fondness for eccentric colour. The unusual combinations, spotting and patterns on these lilies are striking. We hope they inspire you to create a masterpiece your garden.
Lily ‘Beverley Dreams’ is an Oriental x Christmas Lily so more trumpet shaped than the traditional Orientals.
Plant Matisse Oriental Lilies in a permanent position in the garden, as they establish they will become more floriferous. It is a good idea to fertilise for the best blooms - when you first see growth, then again as they are fading.
Matisse Oriental Lilies are versatile and can be grown in pots and gardens. They look best planted in groups of three or more. We suggest you plant a few extra just for picking!
