Lily Red Life

Lilium Red Life

Lily Red Life

OUT OF STOCK
The Lily Red Life are a truly fabulous sight with striking red flower heads. They have mottled burgundy/black speckles on the base of the petals, and sepals which make this a very elegant Tiger Lily. This Lilium will grow on firm stems rising to 120cm. They are ideal as part of a border and if planted deep enough can be left there as they will naturalise easily to flower again the following year. They make beautiful cut flowers for the vase. Height 120cm. 14-16cm bulbs supplied.

Planting

Plant 15cm deep.

Soil Type

Fertile, well drained

When planting, each bulb should surrounded with a little sharp sand both under and above the bulb to keep slugs away and to ward off excessive wetness. As most liliums are stem rooting we strongly recommend you plant at 15cm deep. They give a much better display when planted in clumps of 3, 6 or 12 bulbs (45cm apart). Planting time is December to April.
Lilium bulbs will greatly appreciate the shelter of low growing shrubs or other plants near their roots. In active growth, apply water freely and it is advised that every two weeks you apply a high potash liquid fertilizer.
