GENERAL DESCRIPTION

Please Make Sure When Buying These Bulbs That You Don’t Buy Too Small A Bulb Or They Won’t Flower, They Will Only Throw Green Leaves For The First Year And Take 2-3 Years To Flower These Bulbs Are A Flowering Size Bulb

“Salmon Star” Is A Shorter Variety Of Oriental Lily That Has Salmon Petals With A Nice Coral Stripe Down The Centre And Orange Speckles. Its Unique Colour Really Highlights Any Other Flowers Grown With It Or Along Side It This Very Fragrant Beauty Is A Must. “Salmon Star” Is Hardy Enough For The Border, Pretty Enough For The Bed And Small Enough For The Container And Even Makes An Excellent Cut Flower.

The “Oriental” Hybrids Were Raised From Japanese Species. Their Mid To Late Summer Blooms Open Into Elegant Stars And The Whorled Leaves Are Broader Than Those Of The Other Hybrids. They Will Grow Vigorously If They Are Planted In Dappled Sunlight.

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 Distinctive 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.
