Ruffled soft pink blooms with a white eye, the flowers of Lilium 'Lake Michigan' are large, up to 16cm across.
The exotic blooms of the Oriental Lilies have a strong, alluring fragrance, are very heat tolerant and of course very flamboyant!
Oriental Lilies add glamour and fragrance to the garden. They are also tough, and able to withstand our hot summers.
Liliums are easy! Plant Oriental Lilies in a permanent position in the garden, the longer they establish the more flowers they will bear. Ensure you fertilise your Oriental Lilies well this will ensure the best blooms. Fertilise when you first see growth, then again as they are fading.
In warmer climates, grow your Oriental Liliums in part shade or morning sun so the flowers last longer. Water to establish and keep moist in active growth for best results.
You can create an indulgent display of colour with Oriental Liliums. Gorgeous in the garden and perfect for cut flowers too.
