Highly popular, Asiatic hybrid Lilies are among the earliest to bloom in early-mid summer, and the easiest to grow. They offer a wide array of colors, from the softest pastels to fiery reds and oranges that practically ignite when the sun shines on them. They feature straight stems, high bud counts and generally brightly spotted blossoms and vary in shape from simple open bowls to flowers with exquisitely recurved petals. Asiatic Lilies enjoy a long blooming season (up to 1 month) but most of them are unscented. Planted in spring or fall, they thrive in full sun to part shade locations and do great as potted plants or as cut flowers. They are not fussy about soils, provided they are fertile and well-drained. Good moisture is required and dry soils should be avoided.
