Premium Skyscraper Lily 'Salterello' Bulbs (5 Pack)
This collection comprises of 5 top sized bulbs, of colourful bold and bright orange 'Salterello' a premium variety widely used by commercial flower growers in Holland.
These incredible Skyscraper Lilies grow so tall they look like trees. In their first year they will reach up to 1.2m (5ft) tall, but in future years, once they are fully established, they will get even taller up to 6 or even 7 foot tall eventually. The really do reach for the sky
These large flowered beauties arise as a consequence of hybridisation between Oriental and Trumpet strains of lily hence the marriage of both species characteristics. Every flower carries a wonderful heady perfume and each individual stem can carry well over 20 blooms, which can measure over 15cm (6in) across.
Grow all 5 in large pots about 15cm apart, or in groups in garden borders. They have very strong stems, so should not need support. Cut them for the long-lasting displays in the vase, or leave them to marvel at in your garden. Allow them to die down naturally after flowering, and they will build up reserves for even bigger and better displays the following year. Fully winter hardy, they will last for many years.
