Description of Lily 'Regale' Trumpet Lilies

Lilium Regale is probably the most popular of the Trumpet Lilies, in fact, it is probably the most popular lily bulb we sell! This sweetly scented lily starts off with a deep purple bud before it opens into a stunning white lily. Each flower will grow to 15cm in diameter and 1.2m in height in its first year. It will then reach over 1.5m tall when fully established.

How to plant Trumpet Lilies

  • Trumpet Lily Bulbs should be planted as soon as possible. Ideally in the Spring but can be planted up until the Autumn.
  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Trumpet Lilies prefer Alkaline soil types.
  • 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: Lilium Regale | Trumpet Lilies | Buy Lily Bulbs from the Gold Medal 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.

Lily planting in a pot...:

This question was asked by
- J. Linsley

Good Morning. I have two pots, 48 Cm tall and 40 Cm diameter at the top, how many lily regale bulbs can I comfortably plant in each one? Advice gratefully received. Thank you.

It does all depend on the type of arrangement you would like for your pots. I would suggest planting 3 to 5 bulbs in pot that big. Ideally I'd plant about 3 to give them the space they deserve as Regale lilies are such a stunning variety with large flower heads.
