Description of Lily 'Salmon Star' Pot Lilies

Salmon Star was new to Harts Nursery for 2012. It's a shorter variety of lily that has pale Salmon flowers with orange speckles. Dwarf Oriental pot Lilies will grow to 45cm tall and then taller over the years to perhaps 75cm tall. Each flower will reach about 15cm in diameter. These shorter varieties are ideal for pots and will not need any support.

How to plant Oriental Lilies

  • 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 full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Oriental Lilies tend to grow exceptionally well in pots and tubs.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Planting Lilies in the Garden

  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Oriental Lilies prefer an Acidic/Ericaceous Soil type. They do not tolerate Lime very well.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • Plant the bulbs about 12-20cm (5-8") apart. Space the groupings at least 60-90cm (2-3ft) apart.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.

Planting Lilies in Pots

  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Plant 3 bulbs in a 10-14" 'patio type' pot using good-quality, multi-purpose compost. 
  • John Innes No. 3 is ideal for lilies.
  • Plant the bulbs with 4-6" of soil above them.
  • Ensure there is adequate drainage. 
 
 

Plant care: Buy Lily bulbs | Salmon Star Dwarf Oriental | 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.

Which are the best lilies for plant pots?

Any lilies will be ideal for pots, some lilies will grow tall so make sure you use a substantial pot for Oriental trumpet lilies. We also have lots of 'Pot Lilies' which are ideal for pots as they are a smaller variety.

Do you have any advice as to varieties of lily suitable for planting in a pot, preferably with scent, that resist lily beetle? many thanks

Any of the Oriental dwarf lilies are great for pots as they are shorter varieties. However, any lily variety can be planted in a pot. If you want them to be scented, then avoid the Asiatics as they don't carry a fragrance. I'd suggest Lily Salmon Star, this is a stunning pot lily with a pretty scent. Unfortunately, Lily beetles are attracted to most lilies. They aren't picky! Have you seen our Lily Beetle Prevention spray?
