'Tiny Nanny' is one of Elke's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:
This naturally short growing lily is perfect for the front of your garden or containers and doesn’t need any extra staking. You’ll be showered with flowers with very little care. They’ll grow well in most areas of your garden. Pure white, cute and great as a cut flower, this is my kind of perfect!
If you're looking to create a serene, modern look in your garden, Tiny Nanny is great for mass plantings. The pure white petals set against the dark green leaves are perfect in their simplicity.
Asiatic Patio Lilies are shorter, dwarf versions of the standard Asiatic Lily. Their blooms, however, are just as large and the flower petals are somewhat more succulent. The new Tiny Collection was bred for more blooms, improved colour and stronger stems. This means brighter, longer lasting flowers for you! These prolific little bloomers can be grown in pots and containers but there's nothing stopping you from planting them in the garden along borders and at the front of your flower beds.
They like a rather heavy soil with an ample supply of humus and good drainage. Remove faded flowers and do not cut back stems until autumn. Bulbs should not be lifted but left in the soil to bloom annually for many years.
