Oriental Roselily 'Julia' Pack of 1 Deep Pink
Roselilies are a new development in lily breeding. They are double Oriental lilies with a stunningly sweet fragrance, but unlike other lilies, they have no pollen at all. This makes them perfect for cut flowers as they last four days longer than normal lily's and there is no stain-causing pollen dropping indoors. They flower around 100 days after planting and grow to 90 cm in height.
Double deep pink flower.
Sweetly scented and pollen-free.
100cm tall, a great cut flower.
100 days growing till flowering.
Start by picking a spot to plant. Lilies prefer a moist well-drained soil year-round and full sun to light shade. Flowering will be affected if the bulbs dry out. Enrich the soil with peat, compost or well-rotted organic material. This will help retain soil moisture and improve drainage. Dig a hole approximately 15cm deep or to a depth three times the bulb's diameter. Water in well in heavy clay soils where drainage is poor, or where roots from surrounding trees and shrubs are a problem, plant bulbs in raised beds. Adding Gypsum to the planting hole will improve its drainage. Lilies flower from November through to March. As your lily grows tall you may need to tie it to a stake to help keep the flower and stem growing upright.
