'Sunny Borneo' (Dwarf Oriental)
Lily Bulb Description
Classification: Oriental Hybrid Lily (USDA Zones 5-9, colder climates w/winter mulch.)Lily Bulb #L-7022 -
Pure Oriental Lily Just a hint of pink blush on this pure white lily, nice for homewarming gifts in pots, light shade or near the front of the lily border. In warmer areas the color may not be evident, resulting in startling white blooms, but potted plants can be brought indoors when the buds first begin to open, for indoor enjoyment of it's lovely fragrance and less fading of the pink hue. 18" June/July.
Compact Oriental lilies are becoming increasingly popular, especially as patio gardens become more numerous. For all potted lily bulbs, use one gallon of a high quality potting soil that DOES NOT have fertilizer added. Read the label carefully, some potting soils have too much nitrogen in their formula to benefit lilies, and in fact, it will harm flowering. We recommend you use a vegetable or rose food for all lilies; one tablespoon per bulb when sprouts first emerge, then again just as buds begin to open. With these smaller-sized bulbs and short stems an 8 to 10 inch pot is fine, taller growing lilies need a larger container. Potted lilies must be protected over winter against freeze-thaw and excessive moisture, our guarantee of hardiness is for garden-planted lilies, of which these are also excellent choices.Bulb Size
