As 'Hotline' matures during the growing season, the white petal edging slowly turns pink and then darkens to hot pink. Hot, hot, hot!
Oriental Lilies are the most popular type of lily that we offer...people just can't get enough of them and once you've grown them yourself you'll know why! The flowers themselves can reach 10 in - 25 cm in size and their long lasting blooms make a wonderful cut flower. When planted in groups, their fragrance will fill the garden so be sure to plant a few in well placed containers near the front and back entrances...you'll be glad you did!
Since Oriental Lilies can grow to a height of 4 ft - 120 cm we suggest planting them in sun or partial shade protected from strong winds. Plant them 12 in - 30 cm apart 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.
