Comment

"Asiatic hybrids were derived from a species that originated in Asia. They bloom in early summer, usually flowering for over a month. Their 4- to 6-inch blossoms, which may face up, out, or down, come in shades of red, orange, yellow, pink, lavender, and white. The plants produce compact growth and range from 2 to 5 feet (60-150 cms) high. They are great for growing in containers and for cutting and are quite disease resistant." from Botany.com.

"Asiatic lilies are the easiest to grow with upward facing flowers and no special soil requirements. Short ones are easy in pots" from Broadleigh Gardens.

"Asiatic lilies bloom in early summer, about 1 month before Oriental hybrids, with a different bloom style and color." from Farm Fresh Living.

"Set amongst the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, this 60 acre, private woodland garden (Evenley Wood Garden) offers a huge variety of plants ranging from trees, shrubs and climbers, to a wide selection of bulbs, including a substantial collection of lilies."

Flower Colour

Flowering Months

Above all, it must be remembered that lilies do not like wet feet; they must have good drainage. The lily bulb is never completely dormant. Lilies like to have their feet in the shade and their heads in the sun. This shade can be provided by shrubs or perennials.
