Asiatic Lilies

Among Lilies, the Asiatic varieties are the strongest growing and most hardy.  With their beautiful colors, wide range of heights and bloom times, and ability to rapidly and naturally multiply over the years, they represent some of the finest Lily offerings available.  Asiatic Lilies produce flowers on average from 4 to 6 inches across.  They flourish in full sun to part shade in well-drained soil.  They are best planted in the fall.
 

 

Antartica

Most attractive in form and beauty this 2 to 3 foot tall Lily opens the softest cream, then lightens to a pure white offset by a chartreuse throat. This early to mid-summer bloomer has an extremely high bud count, and its short stems need no staking.

Artistic

An extraordinary color combination: dabs and flecks of sultry, claret-red that seem painted onto pure ivory petals.  Striking even from a distance, a generous planting will enliven any garden -- and the dramatic flowers are spectacular subjects for the vase.  Sturdy and vigorous, they grow 3 to 4 feet tall and bloom midsummer.

 

Cherished

Cherished is a most striking, clear pink variety surely one of the loveliest ever developed in a color that is now all the fashion. The petals darken to almost rose near the tips and are handsomely set off by large golden-yellow anthers. A very exciting statement for your garden. Blooms in June. Reaches 2 to 3 feet.

Chinook

Chinook is considered by many experts to be one of the finest garden Lilies ever produced. Blossoms are the loveliest soft salmon peach, lightly spotted and non-fading, borne in a perfect candelabrum. They absolutely glow in the sun on compact, 3- to 4-foot plants. Chinook blooms in early July.

 

Enchantment

Enchantment is probably the most vigorous Lily in cultivation, as well as the most rapidly multiplier.  Exceptionally easy to grow, it produces glowing orange flowers in big clusters that stand upright on sturdy 3 to 4 foot stems, producing a blaze of rich color.  It flowers midsummer.

 

Petite Pink

Flowers are white with rosy pink brushings and vivid red stamen. There are 12 petals per flowers.  This dwarf pink is among the earliest Asiatic to bloom each season.  It is loaded with blooms at a young age.

 

Red Knight

Red Knight is a spectacular and strong grower with cherry-red blossoms handsomely speckled with scores of shiny black spots.  Glistening bottle green foliage smartly sets of the fiery red blooms -- and is itself a source of interest.  Like other Asiatics it blooms midsummer and grows 3 to 4 foot in height.

 

Rosita

Rosita shines with gracefully recurving petals of clear pink that are lightly sprinkled with red and veined in deeper pink. Red stamens complete the exceptionally lovely picture. Each 3-foot stem produces 8 to 12 upward-facing blooms in June. 

 

Silly Girl

One of the most unique Asiatics, Silly girl boasts pink flowers with creamy yellow centers.  If that weren't enough it is laden with dark, maroon specks.  The colors are vivid and extremely intense.  This is a very vigorous, tall lily that multiplies freely. It is one of the first Asiatics to bloom (except for dwarfs).  This one performs best in full sun.

 

Simply Red

A very tall red Asiatic with an orange cast which hints of its heritage.  Simply Red blooms midseason as far as Asiatics go.  The blooms face upward on this non-fragrant lily

 

Sunray

Like beaming children, these bright sunny faces with auburn freckles truly gladden the heart.  A very abundant late June to early July bloomer on a slightly shorter stem than most.

 

Oriental and Orienpet Lilies

The exotic, Orchid-like beauty and deady fragrance of Oriental Lilies is unmatched in the plant kingdom!  The last Lilies to bloom, they open into wide showy flowers that grace the late summer garden just when other plants are languishing.  Oriental Lilies perfer a sunny to lightly shaded location away from tree roots.  A slightly acid, well-drained soil, with a mulch during the growing season, gives best results.
 

Alchemy

 

This stunning Orienpet introduction combines superb fragrance, giant bloom size, and breathtaking color. Named for the alchemists' desire to turn metal into gold, it is a study in brilliant sunset tones of deep red, copper, orange, gold, and yellow.  Alchemy's blooms reach a full 8 inches across, with a deep red center and all shades of warm gold and orange to the petal tips! Arising in mid- to late summer, it makes a splendid send-off to the summer garden, and is unbeatable in the vase where a single stem perfumes the room. Expect 100 flowers a season from Alchemy once it gets established in your garden.

Perhaps the finest of the new Orienpet hybrids, 'Scheherazade' is magnificent in color, vigor, and flower power. You will want it immediately for your sunny garden.

They begin blooming in midsummer and can continue well into fall, though the best show is in late summer, when you need good color the most. Laughing off excessive heat and humidity, 'Scheherazade' practically blooms through anything if given water and sunlight! 

Stargazer

The Oriental Lily, Stargazer, since its introduction in 1978, has attained the position of reigning champion of all lilies. It is the most popular lily world wide and with good reason.

Black Dragon

Supremely fragrant 6-inch blooms are yellow-centered ivory inside, maroon-striped white outside, for an unbelievably formal, crisp look in the mid- to late-summer garden.

Marvelously fragrant and as lovely in bud as in bloom, this Chinese Trumpet is a treasure for any sunny spot.  The huge blooms are brushed with maroon on the exterior, so that the unopened buds contrast beautifully with surrounding golden blooms. And there are always plenty of surrounding blooms, for each of these 5- to 6-foot stems bears up to 20 blooms over a long 6- to 8-week bloom season.

Kimona

Kimona Strain is often called "Queen of the Lilies". This vigorous, disease-resistant strain bears the largest, most fragrant flowers often a foot across and powerfully sweet scented!

Superbly fragrant, majestic plants create an immense impact in the garden. They grow more impressive over time.

 

Daylily

Daylily flowers last only a day, but each is succeeded by a multitude of others, so their bountiful display continues for weeks.  Among the easiest of perennials to grow, they withstand neglect and are perfect for problem areas.  Grow them in sun or part shade in almost any soil.  With careful selection you can have and endless supply of cut flowers in your garden from June until September.   Daylilies should be divided every 5 years.

Chicago Sunrise

A dazzler in the perennial or Daylily border, and lovely worked into a planting of shrubs. Blooms midsummer.

Siloam

Bright salmon-pink blooms open an incredible 5 inches across on this difficult-to-locate treasure, and most of them are stuffed with double the petal count of other Daylilies! Unlike many rare selections, this beauty isn't the least bit dainty or shy -- anything but! It was bred for vigor and weather resistance, and you'll find it can really take nature's little surprises. The best part is its reblooming ability: once the 16-inch plants become established (a season or two), they will often bloom twice--first in early- to midseason, then again in late summer when you least expect it!

 

 

Stella de Oro'

For sheer bloom power and beautiful color, few daylilies surpass ever-blooming Stella de Oro. Often the first to begin the season and the last to end it, Stella blooms on compact plants 12" high and 18" wide. The flowers are magnificent - a rich golden-yellow that keeps its color throughout the amazingly long bloom time.  "Star of Gold" will become a treasure in your garden for many years.
