'Sunny Keys' is one of Wendy's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:
I’m a huge lily fan and this shorter, Oriental variety, is the one I want blooming on my patio this summer. I’ll plant them in two tall black containers and place them on either side of the entrance to my garden patio. Their spicy fragrance and bold colour will provide an unforgettable entrance.
Nice, compact growth with vivid pink blooms, Sunny Keys is ready to light up your containers. These variants of the standard Oriental Lily are still flamboyant and fragrant but somewhat smaller in stature. Oriental Patio Lilies are ideal for containers but go ahead and plant them along borders and at the front of your garden beds. Even though they're smaller in stature they still pack a punch when it comes to fragrance and when planted in groups, their aroma can fill the garden.
Try cutting a few to bring indoors and share some with your friends and family. Plant them in 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.
