LILIUM 'Sun Ray'
Asiatic Lily, Sun Ray Lily
The vigorous Asiatic lily 'Sun Ray' has big upward-facing, open flowers of bright lemon yellow. These lightly spotted flowers appear in early summer atop medium-sized plants.
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 grow 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.
