Description of Lily 'Henryi' Species Lilies

The Tiger Lily 'Henryi' originates from China and is also known as Henry's Lily after it was introduced to Europe by Augustine Henry. This ornamental plant has small,
downward-facing flowers with textured, recurving petals in a speckled orange/yellow colour. Henryi is also known as a Turk's Cap Lily. This variety of lily gets better year after year as it becomes more established. Henyri can reach up to 150cm tall and can often need some form of support for the abundance of blooms, potentially over 20 flowers per stem.

Planting and growing instructions: Buy Lily Bulbs | Henryi Species Lily | award winning Harts Nursery

  • Plant as soon as possible. Ideally in the Spring.
  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • It is best to check the type of soil you have as different lily varieties like different soils.
  • Henryi Lily bulbs like to be planted in Alkaline soil.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs about 5-8" apart. Space the groupings at least 3 feet apart.
  • If planting in pots, plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Plant care: Buy Lily Bulbs | Henryi Species Lily | award winning Harts Nursery

  • Lilies can tolerate very cold conditions but they do not like to get wet.
  • If planting in borders in the garden, the soil must be well drained and, preferably, humus rich.
  • If planting in pots, make sure lilies are kept moist but do not get waterlogged.
  • Lilies prefer to be planted in a location with at least half a days full sunshine, if its a bit too shady they will lean their stems towards the sun.
  • Lily bulbs do not like to be dried out so they must be kept in soil at all times.
  • Try to plant your lilies where they will dry out after rain to prevent Botrytis, a fungus that spots the leaves. If you do see brown spots on your leaves, spray with a fungicide recommended for roses.
  • If planting in pots, it may be an idea to tilt the pots on their side in the winter to prevent waterlog.
  • When the Lily has finished flowering, cut any seed heads back and allow the foliage to die back naturally. Do not be tempted to cut the stem back until stems becomes hollow and brown.
  • After a few years of flowering, you may find the Oriental produces less blooms, it may be time to lift your bulbs and divide them by breaking off the bulblets. All the bulbs will then need replanting.
  • To prevent Lily Beetles from damaging your lilies, we recommend using the Lily Beetle Prevention Spray or making up your own and using the Concentrate. This Spray (Grazers G4) will also stimulate growth of your lilies. 
  • You can feed your lilies with a Tomato Feed to stimulate and strengthen your lilies when you start to see signs of growth. Make up your tomato feed with half the recommended dilution (written on the instructions on the bottle) and feed once every 3 weeks.
