Planting Shorter Asiatic Lilies

This question was asked by


I’m after some asiatic lilys: easy to grow, low maintenance, hardy and that won’t grow too tall (to go in between / in front of some larger shrubs in the border).

Can you adivse on which variety is the best to go for?

We\’re based in the midlands, area is in partial shade and soil is a bit clay like.


Good morning,

If the soil is too heavy then it may cause the bulbs to rot as they need to be planted in well-drained soil.

I would advise planting them in pots if the drainage isn’t very good.

Here are some shorter Asiatic Lily varieties:

Lily ‘Perfect Joy’ (harts110611)

Lily ‘Majestic Joy’ (harts11741)

Tiny Lily ‘Epic’ (SKU17790)

Tiny Lily ‘Nugget’ (SKU17791)

Tiny Lily ‘Poems’ (SKU17792)

Cesare and Pixie lilies

This question was asked by

The one thing I’d like to know what is the difference between Cesare and Pixie lilies?

Hi Robert

Oh that is a shame – was it a lily that got damaged in transit?
Lilium Cesare is an LA lily, that means it’s a Longiflorum x Asiatic lily. Most LA Lilies will reach a height of 110cm tall. The pixie lilies or they can also be referred to as Pot or dwarf lilies, can come as Asiatics or Oriental lilies. Dwarf lilies, live up to their name, and are a shorter variety. They tend to be 50 – 80cm tall.

Species Lilies scented

This question was asked by

Being new to the names,can u tell me which are scented & don’t grow over 18”-24”

Any of the oriental lilies are scented. If you are looking for a shorter variety of lily, then I’d suggest an Oriental Pot Lily (or ‘dwarf’ lily they are also know as). The Asiatic lilies do not carry a scent.

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?
