Description

Glitzy, fuchsia-pink petals and a strong perfume make Oriental hybrid lily ‘Gomera’ a wonderful choice, both in garden, and for cutting.

The large blooms bring plenty of pizazz to borders and beds when they flower in late summer, atop long, straight stems.   A spidery cluster of green stamens glows above the almost-neon, rippling pink petals, holding velvet-powdered anthers.  If growing as a cut flower, these can be removed gently to avoid any staining.

Care Guide

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.
