Oriental Lily OT
Altari is a striking 'Orienpet' Lily - meaning a cross between an Oriental and a Trumpet Lily... the best of both worlds!
Altari Liliums have large, star shaped raspberry red blossoms which flower 15-25cm wide... real head turners! The blooms sit proudly atop strong, 90-120cm stems.Heavily scented, this beautiful Lily makes a fantastic addition to the fragrant garden.
Asiatic and Oriental lilies come in a range of spectacular colours, shapes, sizes and of course scents. Fantastic in pots, and one of the best cutflower varieties.
Asiatic lilies bloom first in early summer, not long after Paeonies start blooming. They are incredibly hardy providing they are grown in relatively free draining soils. Asiatic's are the shortest type of lily and come in a huge array of colours and shapes, from pastel to tropical.
Asiatic Lilies don’t have much of a fragrance, but they're perfect for adding a splash of colour to the garden.
Oriental lilies have that famously strong, heavenly fragrance. They are tall and stately. Usually Oriental Lilies grow slower than Asiatics, often blooming about the time when Asiatic lilies are beginning to fade (mid/late Summer)
