OT Liliums, Orienpet or Oriental Trumpet Hybrids, are the result of crossing Oriental lilies with Trumpet lilies in an effort to increase the colour range of the Orientals without sacrificing the fragrance. This has certainly been a success with the most stunning colours and shapes now available.
With long slightly trumpet shaped and highly fragrant blooms growing out sideways from strong stems that reach to almost 1m tall, once established these bulbs can produce up to 20 blooms on each stem, and they have a great vase life when picked, making them a superb choice for cut flowers.
Liliums require a well drained soil; heavy or clay soils are completely unsuitable as the bulbs will run the risk of rotting. Protection from strong winds is recommended as their stems and flowers are easily damaged. Liliums prefers a full sun position and are ideal for growing in pots and containers. For best results always use a potting mix for bulbs and be sure to fertilise on a regualr basis.
Supplied as dormant bulbs.
