Lilium Longiflorum.-Easter Lily,Nellie White,3 Bulbs,Suitable for Easter forcing
Our west coast grown easter lilies are highly regarded for their consistent performance and high bud counts.
Everyone is familiar with the large, brilliant white trumpets and powerful sweet fragrance of the Easter Lily because bulbs are forced into bloom by the millions every year.
Lilies are one of the truly great garden plants. Their beauty, diversity, extended season of bloom, exquisite fragrance, graceful stature, and reliable disposition reflect the fruits of hundreds of years of selective breeding. Your garden should not be without them, whether you manage acres of mixed borders or a few pots on a city balcony.
Lilies prefer cool soil, which argues for shade at their feet from low-growing companions such as Ferns, Geraniums, or Hellebores. Plant Lilies in well-drained soil where they will receive 6–8 hours of sun a day. Delicate and graceful Species Lilies carry their flowers on candelebra-shaped stems and are generally more tolerant of shade. When cutting the flowers for bouquets, remove no more than 1/3 of the stem. This provides sufficient leaves on the remaining stem to renew the bulb for the coming year.
