Among the easiest lilies to grow and the earliest to bloom, dwarf Asiatic 'Pixie' Lilies enjoy large, brightly-colored, satin trumpet flowers delicately freckled in the throat, that can't be missed! Held on sturdy stems that do not require staking, their crimson, yellow, orange or pink enormous exotic blossoms are in full fanfare for weeks of color!
- Blooming in late spring - early summer, these showy lilies come back year after year and constitute excellent border plants, providing striking color and contrast to the perennial border.
- They are ideally suited to containers and are perfect for small gardens lacking space. Great as accent plants (plant a minimum of 3 bulbs for best visual impact), spectacular in mass plantings, they also make excellent cut flowers!
- Growing up to 18 inches tall (45 cm) on sturdy stems clad with lance-shaped green leaves, they are highly disease-resistant and perform best in full sun or part shade. These lilies are not overly fussy about soils, although moisture and good drainage is preferable and dry soil should be avoided.
- When flowering is over, cut back leaves and stems after they turn yellow. This plant may self-seed.
- Plant in fall or early spring in the garden. Potted plants may be planted any time between spring and fall.
- This Lily is a member of the Asiatic Hybrids Division (I) which includes lilies with small to medium-sized flowers, usually bowl-shaped, flat or with recurved tepals and with an open center. The flower color is generally uniform or with contrasting tepal-tips and/or throat. Spots are often absent. The flowers have little or no scent and their leaves are scattered with a narrow to medium width. There are 9 different types of lilies classified by the Royal Horticultural Society. And they are all real eye-catchers!
