Hi Harts

looking for best lily for scent to be grown in a lily pot on a patio. The pot is approx 50cm high and 40cm diameter – how many bulbs would you advise ?



I would advise planting 3 bulbs to this size pot. If you are looking for highly perfumed lilies, then any of the orientals are perfumed. The whiter the lily the stronger the scent.

Have you seen Nymph? This is a popular variety due to it’s unique cinnamon-like perfume. Lily ‘Nymph’ (harts1027)

Here you will find links to the perfumed lilies:
Oriental Lilies
Oriental Trumpet Lilies
