Lily 'Lady Alice'

A hybrid of Lilium henryi, this spectacular lily blends from green to apricot to white with a wonderful fragrance.  This ornamental plant has small, downward-facing flowers with textured, recurving petals. Lady Alice is also known as a Turk's Cap Lily. This variety of lily gets better year after year as it becomes more established and will reach up to 120cm tall and can often need some form of support for the abundance of blooms, potentially over 20 flowers per stem.

 

Harts Hint
"If you are unsure of your soil type, you can always plant your lilies in pots and sink them into the garden."

How to plant Lilies

  • Plant as soon as you receive your bulbs.
  • Find a location with full sun or partial shade with well-drained soil.
  • Lady Alice Lily bulbs like to be planted in Acid to Neutral soil.
  • Arrange the Lilies in an odd-number grouping.
  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs about 12-20cm (5-8") apart. Space the groupings at least 60-90cm (2-3ft) 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 10-15cm (4-6") of soil above them.
  • Plant with pointy end up and roots down.

Care Instructions

How to care for Lilies

  • 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.
  • Lilies like a cold dormant phase and are happy to stay outside throughout the winter, just ensure they don't get waterlogged as this will cause the to rot.
  • After a few years of flowering, you may find the Lilium Henryi 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.
