Red Dutch Oriental Trumpet Lily

Red Dutch Oriental Trumpet Lily

Details

Candy apple red blooms with wide yellow margins that have a delicious spicy fragrance.

The outward facing, trumpet shaped blooms are surreal, beginning in the throat with the bold orange red colouring and finishing with lemon yellow edges. The fragrance is exotic and slightly spicy, like cloves and cinnamon.

These lilies have been created by combining the unique features of both the Oriental and Trumpet lilies. The results are nothing less than spectacular and guarantee you get the best of both: strong fragrance, magnificent colours and impressive size - both bloom and entire plant height! In fact, these hybrids will get taller and sturdier with each passing season sometimes reaching heights over 8 ft - 2.5 m! They make a excellent cut flowers and when planted in groups, their fragrance can fill the garden.

Since they can grow to be so very tall we suggest planting them somewhere in the garden where they can be 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.
