New for 2019 and not available to buy anywhere else, this collection of fabulously scented, two-tone lilies comprises of 5 commercial-grower quality, top-sized bulbs producing huge pale pink blooms blushed with a darker centre stripe along each petal.
Dubbed 'Super Lilies', Lilium 'Frontera' is a new and exciting colour for Skyscrapers and will grow so tall they look like trees! In their first year they will reach up to 1.5m (5ft) tall, but in future years, once they are fully established, they will get even taller up to 6 or even 7 foot tall eventually!
These large Skyscraper Lilies are part of a select group of hybrids that have recently been bred by crossing oriental and trumpet lilies, giving them characteristics of both, including flowers which can measure well over 15cm (6in) across. Fortunately, this breeding has not diminished their scent, and each and every flower will give off a heady perfume with each individual stem carrying well over 20 blooms - perfect for cutting too if you want to create your own flower arrangements indoors.
Grow all 5 in large pots about 15cm apart, or in groups in garden borders. They have very strong stems, so should not need support - although if your garden is exposed, it is recommended. Cut them for the long-lasting displays in the vase or leave them to marvel at in your garden. Allow them to die down naturally after flowering, and they will build up reserves for even bigger and better displays the following year. Fully winter hardy, they will last for many years.
Plant lilies as soon as possible after receipt, so that they donít dry out.
When planting, handle them gently to avoid breaking off the scales.
