Tiger Lilies Sweet Surrender
One of the finest Tiger lily varieties available, ‘Sweet Surrender’ produces long, branching stems bearing exquisite, creamy-lemon blooms.
The chic flowers are lightly spotted with dark freckles and hold delicate arching stamens, giving an exotic look. A great lily for cutting and adding to seasonal flower arrangements and large bouquets.
Plant as a grouping with swaying grasses and bee-friendly salvias or Agastache for a beautiful, late-summer border combination.
To cultivate lilies, choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil, digging a hole 15cm deep. Plant the bulbs 15-23cm apart, ensuring they sit 15cm below the soil surface. Water the surrounding soil well, maintaining soil moisture until growth emerges. Young shoots may be susceptible to slug damage, so use wildlife-friendly methods such as a top layer of sand to protect emerging growth. Most Lilies can also be grown in pots – ensure containers are deep and have large drainage holes in the base. As the majestic stems ascend, they will reach heights of 45-150cm, depending on variety. Support taller cultivars with stakes as they grow. Use dilute, balanced liquid plant feed every two weeks during the summer. Spray as soon as you notice the bright red lily beetle or their larvae.
