Cotton candy pink and just as sweet, Elena resembles a rose because each bloom can boast 20 or more petals and lasts for days in the vase!
Double the petals - double the delight! Double Oriental Lilies are quickly gaining popularity and it's easy to see why! These flowers are amazing to grow and once you've tried them for yourself you'll be back for more! 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.
