Lilium

 

Lily (Asiatic)

Tall, flowering perennials up to 60-80 cm. in height. A single, unbranched stem from a bulb with narrow, pointed leaves. Flowers are large and often fragrant, and in a range of colours. Flowers have six petals and prominent stamens. The Asiatic lily is a true lily which flowers earlier than many lilies - from early Summer to mid Summer. Less fragrant than Oriental lilies, but much-prized by flower-arrangers.
