Double Asiatic lilies offer the same features of Asiatic lilies with no fragrance, bright colours and long vase life, but have the added flair of double the number of petals.
Amazing blooms that change colour as they mature.
They open lime-green to white and develop to pale yellow and then to a right apricot-orange.
A plant in full bloom has all colours present at the same time, making a spectacular display.
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.
