Set your pots and borders alight this summer, with this colour mix of dwarf and compact Carpet Lilies.
Naturally bred grow only to about 30cm tall, what they lack in height they make up for in sheer flower power - each bulb will give one strong stem with 3-5 flowers each in the first year and increasing year after year beyond that.
They are great planted en-masse in beds and borders where they will smother the bare ground – ideal for filling in gaps and spaces where you really will create a carpet of hot summer colour. Alternatively, they’ll look great planted in a group in a large pot, lighting up patios, terraces or even balconies.
As always, lilies make a fabulous cut flowers – these brightly coloured beauties would make a great addition to a cut flower garden where their more compact height will sit well on windowsills in a vase.
Easy to grow and maintain, these carpet lilies can be planted straight out between January and June and will reward you year after year with summer-long colour.
