Botanical Name

LILIUM 'Tiny Athlete'( TINY SERIES) PP17641

Plant Common Name

Asiatic Lily, Tiny Athlete Lily

General Description

The large-flowered 'Tiny Athlete’ has upward-facing, mildly fragrant flowers that are clear pale pink. This compact Asiatic lily blooms in summer and is ideal for container culture. It was bred in The Netherlands by Nicolaas A. M. Mak.

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. Those in the Tiny Series are perfect for cutting gardens, containers, and mixed borders.
