LILIUM 'Courier'

Family

Liliaceae

Botanical Name

LILIUM 'Courier'

Plant Common Name

Courier Lily, Longiflorum-Asiatic Lily

General Description

The fantastic LA Hybrid 'Courier' has large creamy white flowers with pale moss green throats. These stand atop tall, sturdy stems which are great for cutting.

LA hybrids are crosses between the Easter lily (Lilium longiflorum) and Asiatic hybrids. They typically bear large, showy, fragrant flowers on robust, tall, disease-resistant plants. The sturdy stems are lined with lance-like, dark green foliage. The flowers commonly appear in early or midsummer.

This hardy and adaptable lily prefers full to partial sun and neutral, well-drained, humus-rich soil. Whether in the garden or a vase, 'Courier' offers elegance and fragrance. The anthers should be removed from cut flowers because the colorful pollen will shed and stain fabrics.
