Description of Roselily 'Leona' Roselilies

Roselily Leona is another one of our double white lilies with no stamen - great for cat lovers that may be worried about the pollen. Why not plant Roselily Leona Bulbs with Roselily Editha Bulbs to produce a stunning array of double lilies in your garden or pots? The pure whites mixed with sugary pinks will make a real statement.  Roselily Leona may need some support once fully grown. Roselily 'Leona' Roselily from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

Planting and growing instructions: Roselily 'Leona' Roselily from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • Roselily Bulbs should be planted 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. Roselilies 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 an Ericaceous Soil. Although any good multi-purpose compost is suitable, John Innes No.3 is recommended for Roselilies as it is easier to manage with watering and feeding. 
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Plant care: Roselily 'Leona' Roselily 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.

A white, pollen-free Lily

This question was asked by
F. Mann

I want a white, pollen-free Lily that will do well in partial shade and which will be in flower throughout August. You have lots of ones on your website, so which would you recommend?

All our Roselily lilies are gorgeous and pollen free. They also carry a lovely fragrance too. Perhaps have a look at:

Roselily ‘Pamela’ (SKU17788)

Roselily ‘Leona’ (SKU17786)

However, please note, our lily bulbs are being dispatched In February 2019 now. You can still purchase our lilies from us up until July at all the flower shows we will be exhibiting at. See list here:
