Stock # 7049 - 'Souvenir' - Oriental Lily Bulb
With soft pink kissed flowers with white frosting in the center of each bloom, this very short growing Oriental Hybrid Lily is tops for containers for color and style. The flowers produced by this Oriental hybrid lily bulb are lightly ruffed on the edges, and they have a sweet fragrance, but in hot climates, locate in afternoon shade to show the pink edging best or bring pot indoors just when the buds begin to "color up" to enjoy indoors. 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.
