White Asiatic Lily (Lilium x asiatica (white cv))

White Asiatic Lily

Gleaming brilliance, the White Asiatic Lily (Lilium x asiatica (White cv)) is an incredible showy flower that is show-stopping when the multiple buds open fully! Large and long-lasting, these are low-maintenance hardy perennial bulbs that multiply year after year!

Forming dense clumps of upright stems that are covered with many strappy green leaves, Asiatic Lilies are magnificent star-shaped blossoms with a spray of stamen and pistils erupting from the centers. The butterflies and bees will be arriving in droves to sip the nectar while using these stamen to perch on. Pure white top and bottom, these are large blooms that look as fantastic in the garden as they do in a bouquet!

White Lilies go well with almost every other color flower and all styles of garden, and all sizes of the garden too! Blooming throughout the late spring and early summer months, it’s 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:

Looking like radiant starlets in pots and planters, these are vivid as thrillers and focal points among other plants as they are as stand-alone specimen groupings! Incorporate into mixed-plantings in containers as eye-catching centerpieces throughout garden beds and sunny porch pots! Plant in rows and groups 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.

Lilies are fantastic gift plants for almost all occasions! Plant in the cutting garden for incredible floral arrangements, where a single stem creates a long-lasting bouquet on its own! Pair with Ornamental grasses, Delphinium or Daisies, or with airy Columbines, Shrub Roses, and of course other Lilies!
