Lilium ‘OT-Hybrid Tower Lilies On Stage’, also known as tree or skyscraper lilies, are lovely bulbous perennials with large star shaped flowers, atop tall upright stems.
A perfect addition to a summer border, these lilies make for a striking image, rising in height up to 200cm within the first two years with each bulb capable of producing up to thirty blooms, each 20cm across.
Orienpet hybrid lilies such as the ‘On Stage’ feature the best traits of both parents with the incredible beauty and fragrance of the Oriental Lily combined with the robustness, heat tolerance and colours of the Aurelian/Trumpet Lilies. Much like other Orienpet Lilies, this plant features long lasting blooms which are sure to brighten up any border or pot with its stunning rose pink flowers and delicate yellow centres.
With its deep green foliage these bulbs tend to take on a shrub like appearance and if left, will tend to naturalise and spread, providing a stunning display year after year.
These lilies are perfect among sunny borders, along fences or walls, or in large containers on a patio or terrace. These bulbs prefer moist but well drained soil and should be planted at a depth of around 15cm deep and upwards of 20cm apart. Ideally these lilies should be positioned with their heads in the sun and their roots protected by shade.
Orienpet lilies such as the ‘On Stage’ tend to bloom slightly earlier than Orientals, typically between July and October.
