Lilium Oriental Orange Space
Eye-catching Oriental Trumpet hybrid lily ‘Orange Space’ ought to be given ample room in the border to show off its spectacular, clementine-coloured blooms.
The large flowers are produced in floriferous clusters, at the top of lofty stems.
Plant the bulbs towards the back of sunny garden borders and provide support in breezy areas. Orange Space also grows well in large feature containers, putting on a show-stopping display.
Also known as tree, or giant lilies, these aristocratic hybrids combine the best features of both Trumpet and Oriental lilies.
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.
