Sumo Oriental Lily 'Bacardi' flowers are saturated in colour, they are a lovely magenta red from bud to bloom. They look wonderful when complemented with white Orientals such as Premium Blonde.
Sumo Lilies are the biggest and the best Lilium bulbs on offer. The bulbs are huge, which means you can expect 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 Oriental Lilies add glamour and fragrance to the garden. They are also tough, and able to withstand our hot summers.
Plant Sumo Oriental Lilies in a sunny spot. Water to establish and keep them moist in active growth for best results.
Ensure you fertilise your Sumo Oriental Lilies well, this will make certain of the best blooms. It is ideal to fertilise when you first see growth, then again as the flowers are fading.
In warmer climates, if you grow your Sumo Oriental Liliums in part shade or morning sun the flowers last longer.
Gorgeous in the garden and perfect for cut flowers too.
