Lilium ‘Silk Road’ is a heavy producer with stunning white, blushed pink petals. The beet red colour is strongest in the centre of the 20cm flowers. As the bulbs mature and establish they can even produce secondary buds, and can flower for around a month.
Lily ‘Silk Road’ is an Oriental x Christmas Lily so more trumpet shaped than the traditional Orientals but with added colour and vigour. They are known as O.T. or Orienpet Lilies. They are also really long lasting in vases.
These Lilies are versatile and can be grown in pots and gardens. They look best planted in groups of three or more. We suggest you plant a few extra just for picking!
Ideally plant in a permanent position in the garden, as they establish they will become more floriferous. It is a good idea to fertilise (for the best blooms) - when you first see growth, then again as they are fading.
Lilium ‘Silk Road’ was previously known as Lilium ‘Friso’.
