Lilium 'Matrix'

 

Lily 'Matrix' (Asiatic)

Tall, flowering perennials . A single, unbranched stem from a bulb of overlapping scales, with narrow, pointed leaves growing spirally along the length of the stem. Flowers are large,showy,and usually fragrant,and in a range of colours: whites, pinks, reds, yellows, oranges, and purple. Flowers have six petals and prominent stamens. The flower buds appear at the top of the stem, and the lowest bud opens first, the other flowers appearing in succession up the stem. 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. 'Matrix' is an orange, dwarf variety, and, as such, can also be grown in a pot.
