Amateras Lily, Longiflorum-Asiatic Lily
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
The robustly flowering LA Hybrid lily ‘Amateras' has big side-facing orange or orange-red flowers with a throat with hints of golden orange. This sturdy-stemmed selection produces loose clusters of bowl-like blooms in midsummer.
LA Hybrid lilies are the result of crossing the many-colored Asiatic lilies with the larger, trumpet-flowering Easter lily, Lilium longiflorum. They typically bear clusters of wide-flaring flowers atop strong stems that are particularly long-lasting as cutflowers. Stems are lined with glossy green, narrow, lance-shaped leaves. Once they have flowered they will not bloom again until the following year, so be sure to plant them with ornamentals that look great later in the season.
Lilies perform best growing in full to partial sun and neutral-pH, well-drained, humus-rich soil. They are borne from scaled bulbs that are easily planted; a typical planting depth is 5 to 6 inches (13 to 15 cm) for LA Hybrids. They look best planted in small groups in perennial borders or cottage gardens and are exceptional cutflowers. Remember to remove the anthers from cut flowers because the shedding pollen will stain fabric.
