Rich yellow petals decorated with hundreds and thousands of maroon spots. A generous bloomer and strong grower.
Why Sumo? Sumo Lilies are the biggest and the best Lilium bulbs on offer. Originally produced for the floristry industry, these XL bulbs have grown so big they actually have too many blooms! While this is not good in bunches, it is great in gardens, allowing you a big number of blooms from the get go and are faster to flower.
These early summer superstars offer bright and lasting colour with their abundant, upward facing flowers that are fantastic for picking.
Simply plant, your Asiatic Lilies, fertilise and enjoy. Leave them in the ground to establish and they will bring you years of joy.
Choose a humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny location with protection from the hot afternoon sun. Water in well, then keep moist while in growth for best results. A sprinkling of fertiliser at the start of the season and again as the flowers are finishing will serve them well. Mulching over the summer will help to maintain moisture levels in the soil.
Our Tip: Plant a variety of lily types to enjoy longer lasting colour in the garden. Asiatic and L.A. Lilies flower first, followed by the species and trumpets/Christmas Lilies and Orientals are the last to bloom.
