GENERAL DESCRIPTION

“Lilium Robert Swanson” Is An Eye-Stopping Giant Tree-Like Lily With Very Striking Deep-Yellow Flowers With Splashes Of Metallic Burgundy-Red. Developed By Lily Hybridiser, Dr Robert Griesbach Of Wisconsin And Introduced In 2002. “Lilium Robert Swanson” Is Another Ot Lily; A Cross Between An Oriental Lily And A Trumpet Lily. In America They Are Referred To As Orienpet Lilies, But Here In The Uk They Have Become Known As Giant Tree-Like Lilies Or Goliath Lilies Because Of Their Enormous Size. “Lilium Robert Swanson” Is A Medium-Sized Giant Tree-Like Lily Growing To Only Bout 1.4 Metres In Height. As They Are Vulnerable To Being Blown Over By The Wind They Should Be Staked For Support.

An Extremely Attractive Cultivar “Lilium Robert Swanson” Produces Delicately Fragranced Flowers That Are 18cm Across In Mid-Summer Usually In July In England.

Cultivated For Over 5 Thousand Years Lillies Are Undoubtedly One Of The Most Beloved And Treasured Of All Perennial Garden Flowers. They Are Undeniably Beautiful. From When They First Break The Topsoil Lilies Command Attention, The Stems With Their Spirals Of Fresh Clean-Cut Narrow Leaves, Lengthen At An Almost Visible Rate And Are Soon Topped By Prolific Buds That Hint Of The Exotic Blooms To Come. The Splendour Of The “Oriental” Species And The Hybrids That Have Developed From Them Are Lush And Prolific. “Oriental Lilies” Result From Complex Crosses Of Several Asian Lily Species.

Most Members Of Oriental Family Flower In Late Summer And Grow From 90-100 Cms. They Are Renowned For Their Large Flaring Bowl-Shaped Blooms. The Blooms Are Often Spotted, Fragrant And Have Distictive Hairs At The Base Of The Tepals. If Planted In The Autumn, They Will Flower In The Spring.

Lily Bulbs Should Be Planted In Holes Such That The Tops Of The Bulbs Are About 12 Cm Underground. Sprinkle A Small Amount Of Fertilizer Into The Hole Before Placing The Bulbs. Lilies Prefer Full To Partial Sun And Neutral, Well-Drained Humus-Rich Soil. They Are Perfect For Cutting Gardens, Summer Containers And Mixed Borders. If The Lilies Grow More Than 90 Cms, They May Require Staking Although You Will Likely Find The Stems Are Incredibly Strong. As Soon As Buds Form Is The Time To Begin Staking The Plants. Lilies Are Long Lasting In The Garden And In Bouquets.

They Will Multiply Each Year And Every Few Years Will Require Thinning, So That They Don’t Become Too Crowded. Allow The Plants To Die Off Naturally Rather Than Cutting Them Down After Blooming. This Will Ensure The Bulbs Have Seen A Full Return Of Nutrients From The Plant Before Winter.
