This flower reminds me of one of those delicious blood oranges. Shades of orange overlaid with strong red spotting and stretching up to 10cm. A bold beauty to add another dimension to your garden.
Matisse Asiatic Liliums are a triumph of modern breeding techniques; marrying the handsome, old fashioned spotted lilies with today’s bright colours and strong disease resistance. They have little to no fragrance so are perfect for gardeners after colour without the heady aroma many lilies have.
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 Oriental/Asiatic crosses and Orientals are the last to bloom.
