Coming from the age of love and flower power, in the 1960s, Lilium ‘Corsage’ has dazzled gardeners for over half a century. Up to 20 charming flowers open on the branching, strong, compact stems (to 60-100cm). The majestic blooms are soft pink, fading to cream with a smattering of maroon spots and narrow border. Each bloom is 10-15cm across.
Simply plant, fertilise and enjoy. Leave them in the ground to establish and they will bring you years of joy. Gardeners are returning the ‘old fashioned’ Tiger Lilies because of their hardy nature and nostalgic charm. They are less bright flashy (some may say gaudy) than those grown for cut flowers, but just as appealing and last well in a vase.
Plant Lilium ‘Splendens’ in a permanent position in the garden, the longer they establish the more flowers they will bear. Ensure you fertilise well, this will ensure the best blooms. In warmer climates, grow in part shade or morning sun so the flowers last longer.
Plant Tiger Lilies into humus rich, moist, well drained soil. Water to establish and keep moist during growth and flowering. Blooms are suitable for picking.
