More About Asian Lilies

More On the Asian or Asiatic Lily

One of the largest groups of lilies, they are very mesmerizing and exciting when the Asiatic Lily (lilium asiatica) flower buds open.

Asiatic Lillies multiply rapidly and bloom over a long season, starting mid May and usually through mid July.  However, there are some that bloom well into August (refer to our flower facts listed on each product details page).  The alergy sufferer can appreciate this category of lillies, as most are not scented.

Although generally unscented, a light scent sometimes can be detected. Mature Asiatic Lillies can range from dwarf; (14 inches to 18 inches) to large (22 inches to 30 inches). Extremely well suited for container growing, they can be grown in full sun or afternoon shade. As with all bulbs, plant four to six inches deep, do not over water, and in sustained, extreme colder climates (20 degrees and below) cover the lily bulbs with mulch or some other protection.

Some of the most popular asiatic lillies include: 'Lollypop Lily' , 'Cote d'Azure Lily' , 'Centerfold Lily' , 'Landini Lily' , 'Belo Horizonte Lily' , 'Orange Pixie Lily'
