Description of Polar Star Double Oriental Lilies

Polar Star is another one of our most popular Lilies and always sells out at all the shows we exhibit at. It is a highly and sweetly scented, pollen-free Double Oriental Lily that was one of the first of this popular variety introduced to Harts Nursery. This beautiful perfectly formed, white lily is ideal for cut flower for weddings. It is perfect for any bride's bouquet as it is pollen free and long lasting. This lily will grow to 70cm but will grow taller once more established over the years. It will produce double blooms of up to 15cm in diameter. This variety will flower a little later than other lily types, typically towards the end of July. Polar Star Double Oriental Lily from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

Planting and growing instructions: Polar Star Double Oriental Lily from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Double Oriental 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 partial sun/shade with well-drained soil.
  • It is best to check the type of soil you have as different lily varieties like different soils as Double Oriental Lilies mainly like Acidic/Ericaceous soils.
  • 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: Polar Star Double Oriental Lily 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 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 Longiflorum Asiatic 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.
  • See FAQ on Lily Beetle care.
