Liliums – Bulbs and Plants
The flowers that we call Lilies are Lilium species and cultivars. With over 100 species of Lilium bulbs for sale, these flowering bulbs provide a wide range of possibilities for the garden.
All varieties prefer a well drained soil with lots of well rotted compost, some protection from hot afternoon sun, and you have a good spot for liliums.
Asiatic Liliums are very popular although not scented. Lilium Longifolium are used extensively in the cut flower industry.
