Delivery is from late January to mid April, for immediate planting out.
Lilium 'Rising Moon' is a very striking trumpet lily with very large flowers presented on tall stems 90-120cm high. The classic shaped blooms are a soft lemon yellow with apricot/orange edges.
The inner veins of the trumpet are a beautiful vibrant green with contrasting deep burgundy stamens. 'Rising Moon' lillies are also beautifully scented and will fill a room with their classic scent when picked for cut flowers.
When planting, each bulb should surrounded with a little sharp sand both under and above the bulb to keep slugs away and to ward off excessive wetness. As most liliums are stem rooting we strongly recommend you plant at 15cm deep. They give a much better display when planted in clumps of3,6 or 12 bulbs, 45cm apart.
Planting time is December to April. Lilium bulbs will greatly appreciate the shelter of low growing shrubs or other plants near their roots. In active growth, apply water freely and it is advised that every two weeks you apply a high potash liquid fertilizer.
