Oriental Trumpet lilies are known for their fragrant, trumpet shaped blooms and strong stems, and make excellent cut flowers. Once established the strong stems can carry up to 25 blooms each.
OT Lilies, or Oriental Trumpet Hybrids, are the result of crossing Oriental lilies with Trumpet lilies in an effort to increase the colour range of the Orientals without sacrificing the fragrance. This has certainly been a success with the most stunning colours and shapes now available.
Lilies prefer a well-drained soil and some protection from strong winds. They like a full sun or part shady position and are also ideal for growing in pots or containers.
