Lilies are the divas of the summer garden, their huge trumpet-shaped blooms stealing the spotlight in the mid to rear of the garden. Long-lasting and so easy to grow from a spring-planted bulb, Asiatic Lilies are often the first of the summer to bloom, and what a glorious beginning they make!

This pack of 4 bulbs contains 2 each of Rosella's Dream and Mapira. We have paired these because they reach about the same height (25 to 30 inches the first year, a bit taller as time goes on) and both flower quite early in summer. The bloom colors complement one another magnificently: Rosella's Dream is a lovely deep pink to white with light maroon freckling, while Mapira is rich maroon and burgundy, dark and smoldering.

Superb for cutting, these blooms will increase in both size and number with each passing year. Asiatic Lilies are hardy just about everywhere in the country, and quite easy to grow in well-drained, reasonably fertile garden soil receiving full sun to light shade. They like to loll behind stout, shorter plants, leaning over them a bit as they grow (their flowering stems can get top-heavy!) You can stake them, of course, but it's more fun to watch them arch over a lower plant for support!

Both of these lilies stand up nicely to unseasonably hot, dry, or humid summer weather. Mulch them in to keep them comfortable if the weather gets extreme, and they should return for many years, bringing in butterflies and filling your vases.
