Red Asiatic Lily

Availability: Out of stock

Brooding dark and saturated color, the Red Asiatic Lily (Lilium x asiatica (Red cv)) is an incredible showy bloom that is a real stunner when the cluster of buds are fully open! Huge blooms are long-lasting, these are easy to care for cold-hardy bulbs that multiply in number every year!

Forming dense clumps of upright growing stems that are lined with multiple rows of strappy green foliage, Asiatic Lilies are magnificent star-shaped blossoms with a spray of stamen and pistils erupting from the centers. These are gorgeous blooms that look as fantastic in the garden as they do in a vase!

Red Lilies go well with almost every other color of flower and bloom for a long time during the late spring and early summer months. Cold hardy down to zone 4 and heat tolerant throughout nearly all but the coldest US growing zones, the only thing these tough perennial bulbs can’t handle is soggy wet soil.

Planting and Application:

Asiatic Lily looks fantastic in pots and planters as a vivid thriller and focal point plant. Specimen plantings in containers are an eye-catching centerpiece in garden beds and porch pots alike! The butterflies and bees will be arriving in droves to sip the nectar. Plant in rows and groupings in garden beds and borders for the same effect, bridging the gap between spring ephemerals and later summer blossoms in the cottage, perennial and cut flower border.

Red Lilies are fantastic gift plants for almost all occasions. Plant in cutting beds for incredible floral arrangements, where a single stem of these blooms creates a long-lasting bouquet! Pair with Ornamental grasses, tall Salvia and Penstemon or with airy Columbine, and of course Roses and other Asiatic Lilies!
