In each collection you will receive 1 bulb each of:
Lilium 'Easy Waltz'
The baby pink petals of this Asiatic lily have a deeper flush and a smattering of darker spots towards their base. They surround a cluster of pollen-free stamens, which is really useful if you like to cut your lilies for the vase, but dont want their pollen to stain your clothes. Grows to 100cm high.
Lilium 'Easy Vanilla'
This is a great choice if you love the look of the lily flowers, but you dont want to be covered in their pollen every time you touch them. That's because these are pollen-free - and that's particularly useful if you are growing them for their cut flowers. Grows to 100cm high.
Lilium 'Easy Samba'
Add some drama to the summer garden with this stunning pollen-free lily. Each bloom is an exotic-looking blend of orange and deep maroon, so has a tropical feel to it, and as the stamens do not carry pollen, you dont need to worry about it staining your clothes or furnishings if you cut them for the vase. Grows to 100cm high.
- Garden care: Lilies can be planted at any time from early autumn, to mid-spring. Planting in autumn often helps them settle in and become better established before they start to put on their new spring growth, but spring planting is a better option if your soil is heavy and wet during winter. Choose a sunny spot, preferably where the plant receives a little light shade at its base, and plant each bulb 15-20cm deep in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Space them between 15 - 30cm intervals and provide support before the flowers appear. Deadhead the faded blooms promptly and cut the dead stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.
