Description

Aptly named Lotus Lilies are part of a new, double-flowered sport of Oriental Lily.  ‘Lotus Queen’ is a pretty, soft-pink layered variety, bearing a beautiful scent when it blooms in June and July.

Excellent for cutting, thanks to long stems up to 1m tall and long-lasting, pollen-free blooms.  Cut as the buds begin to crack open and flowers will last for over a week in fresh water arrangements.

The unusual, ruffled blooms appear in shades of dusky-rose to almost white, with cranberry-red speckles on their surface.

Plant the bulbs in full sun or part-shade, towards the back of a large border or deep, wide container where they will dazzle.

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.
