Lotus Lilies Dream
A delectable new Lily variety – ‘Lotus Dream’ bears glorious blooms of layered, rosy-pink petals with raspberry freckles.
The beautifully scented flowers bloom between June and July. As doubles, they are pollen-free and therefore long-lasting - both in the garden, and in the vase as a stunning cut flower.
Perfect for adding height, fragrance and glamour to summer borders and large feature containers, surrounded and supported by mid-height and lower growing perennials, foliage plants or wispy grasses.
Grows best in full sun or partly shaded areas in rich, well-drained soil.
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.
