|How To Grow
Tree Lilies (also called ‘Orienpet’ or ‘OT Lilies’) are relatively new additions to the lily world, produced after years of efforts to combine the sublime beauty of the Oriental Lilies with the more garden persistent, heat tolerant and colourful Trumpet and Aurelian hybrids. So the OT stands for Oriental Trumpet for the parents these lilies are hybridized from. They are often called Tree Lilies or King Lilies as they can reach a majestic height of 200cm in a couple years, carrying numerous massive blooms on each sturdy stem. The blooms have more of a trumpet shape than Oriental lilies, but are highly perfumed, just like their Oriental parents. Best planted in a permanent position in the garden, as they will become more floriferous over a couple of years.
