Lilium Asiatic Ilse

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



The canary yellow blooms of lily ‘Ilse’ sing of sunshine, bursting with enthusiasm and cheer. The flowers flaunt six broad, golden petals, freckled at the base, surrounding a crown of elongated stamens. Watch as bees and butterflies flutter to feast on the plentiful pollen and nectar. These Asiatic hybrids carry minimal scent – perfect for those who usually find the fragrance of lilies overwhelming. The upward-facing blooms are carried on dark, leafy stems. Reaching a height of 45cm, this petite lily variety will bring joyful exuberance to container displays and gardens where space is at a premium.

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.
