Probably the easiest to grow and hardiest of all the lilies, Asiatic Lilies are usually also the first ones to bloom, flowering between June and August. Asiatic Lilies also have the widest range of differently-coloured flowers, but, unfortunately, unlike most lilies, most do not have a fragrance. Blooms vary in style, usually in terms of how they display their flowers, which can be upward, downward or outward facing. Some even hang their beautiful heads in a way reminiscent of pretty paper lanterns. Asiatic Lilies should be planted in full sun in soil that drains well – the bulbs don’t do well in soggy soil. Asiatic Lilies range from dwarf to giant, reaching heights from 30 cm to 1,8 meters (1 to 6 feet).
