Lilium ‘Indian Summerset’ has lustrous, rose pink petals with a touch of cream. The flowers are nice and upright. It is an LA Lilium so has a light fragrance.
LA and Asiatic Liliums are hardy cultivars with bright, colourful, upward facing flowers and little to no fragrance. The stems average 4-8 blooms, with numbers increasing as the bulbs establish. They make excellent cut flowers and are really easy to grow.
Choose a humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny location. They will appreciate afternoon shade in warmer climates. 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.
Keep your Lilies moist while in growth and fertilise at the start of the season and again as the flowers are finishing for the best results. Mulching over the summer will help to maintain moisture levels in the soil.
LA Liliums are a cross between Asiatic and Christmas Lilies, they have a slight fragrance and more of a trumpet shape. Asiatic Liliums do not have a fragrance, so are perfect for gardeners after colour but no heady aroma. They will take 10-14 weeks to flower from planting depending on weather.
