How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! These beautiful blooms will have you waxing poetic in no time at all. I mean, just look at those colours! With 5-7 flowers per stem this shorter lily shines in containers and in the front of garden beds. The dark purple, almost black centres, ending in soft pink tips, look as if they have been painted on the petals. Poetic indeed!
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.
