We believe ‘White Dragon’ is the best Christmas Lily available. At a ‘Sumo’ size, it is even bigger and better. The stems are thicker, stronger and taller. They bear more stunning flowers and are wonderfully fragrant.
Allow around 8-10 weeks from planting for flowers. We love White Dragon, and are excited that it is available exclusively through Tesselaar. Neil Bates, our product manager, and Albert, our Lilium farmer, continue to sing the praises of this exceptional variety. It has all the attributes of traditional Christmas Lilies but is more high powered with taller, stronger stems to support the abundant blooms, larger and more solid trumpets.
The white flowers have a handsome green throat. They have an incredibly long vase life and a heady fragrance.
Plant Christmas Sumo Lilies in a permanent position in the garden; the longer they establish, the more flowers they will bear. It is also a good idea to fertilise your Christmas Sumo Lilies, this will ensure the best blooms. In warmer climates, grow your Christmas Sumo Lilies in part shade or morning sun then your flowers will last longer.
