Botanical Name

LILIUM 'Horizon'

Plant Common Name

Asiatic Lily, Horizon Asiatic Lily

General Description

The heavy flowering Asiatic lily ‘Horizon’ has big upward-facing bright orange flowers. This compact selection produces loose clusters of blooms from early to midsummer and is ideal for container culture.

Asiatic lilies are probably the most common and easily grown type of hybrid lily. They typically bear clusters of wide-flaring flowers atop strong stems. The upright 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 prefer full to partial sun and neutral, well-drained, humus-rich soil. They are borne from scaled bulbs that are easily planted. The typical depth is six inches for Asiatics. They look best planted in small groups in perennial borders or cottage gardens and make excellent cut flowers. Remember to remove the anthers from cut flowers because the shedding pollen will stain fabric.
