Description of Multicoloured 'Tree-like' Lily Bulb Collection (Pack of 12 Bulbs) Lily Bulb Collections Lily Bulb Collections

These giant Oriental Trumpet Lilies (also know as Orienpet or Tree Lilies) are a hybrid of the showy Trumpet Lily and hardy Oriental Lily. The result is a sweetly scented and stunning show of magnificent blooms which can produce up to twenty blooms per stem. These Tree-like Lilies are very sturdy and can grow up to 8 feet. They are lime tolerant and therefore ideal for borders or containers. Soil must be well drained.
This stunning collection of mixed coloured 'Tree like' lily bulbs (12 bulbs in total) will produce a magnificent display of multicoloured lilies throughout your garden. Collection to include (from left to right in image)3 x Shocking, 3 x Sucinto 3 x Nymph and 3 x Paraguay bulbs. These Oriental Trumpet lilies will grow in any soil condition.

  • Oriental Trumpet Hybrid 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.
  • Oriental Trumpet Hybrid Lilies can tolerate most soil types, Acidic or Alkaline.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs about 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.

  • 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 day’s full sunshine, if it’s 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 Trumpets Lily 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.
