LA Lilium ‘Forza Red’ is a lovely deep colour that borders on maroon. A stand out with oranges or whites.
Sumo Lilies are XXL and will provide you with a brilliant show, and 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 in a sunny spot, water to establish and then keep them moist in active growth for best results. It is best to fertilise your Lilies well as this will make certain of the best blooms. 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.
