This collection comprises of 5 size 14/16 bulbs, the same as used by commercial flower growers in Holland, of gorgeous deep wine red of 'Amarossi''. These incredible Skyscraper Lilies grow so tall they look like trees! In their first year they will reach up to 1.5m (5ft) tall, but in future years, once they are fully established, they will get even taller up to 6 or even 7 foot tall eventually! The really do reach for the sky. These large flowered beauties arise as a consequence hybridisation between Oriental and Trumpet strains of lily hence the marriage of both species characteristics. Every flower carried a wonderful heady perfume and each individual stem can carry well over 20 blooms, which can measure well over 15cm (6in) across. Grow all 5 in large pots about 15cm apart, or in groups in garden borders. They have very strong stems, so should not need support. Cut them for a long-lasting displays in a vase, or leave them to marvel at in your garden. Allow the plants to die down naturally after flowering, and they will build up reserves for even bigger and better displays the following year. Fully Winter hardy, they will last for many years.

Top Tips

Once they have flowered your lilies will not bloom again until the following year, so be sure to plant them with other plants that look great later in the season.
Remove the faded flowers so that the plants donít waste energy making seeds.

Care Guide

  • As these lilies can grow so tall, staking them against the wind - stout bamboo canes are ideal as they blend in with the stems.
    Keep an eye out for lily beetles which can quickly defoliate your plants.
  • Plant in fertile, moist and well-drained soil - a layer of horticultural grit in the planting hole will help drainage.
  • Plant bulbs where the plants will benefit from light afternoon shade.
  • Mulch over winter to protect the bulbs from extreme cold , or if your ground lays wet, you may want to consider lifting and storing the bulbs.
  • Keep well-watered when in growth and give a high-potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from early spring until 6 weeks after flowering.
  • Leave the foliage until it turns brown in autumn.
  • Divide plants every 3 to 4 years as new growth begins in the spring.
