General Description

There are lots of wonderful cultivars in the Tiny Series. These very compact Asiatic lilies bloom in summer and are ideal for container culture. They were bred in The Netherlands and most are patented.

Members of the Tiny Series come in various shades of white, orange, yellow, pink, and red. They bear clusters of large flaring flowers atop short strong stems. The upright stems are lined with glossy green, narrow, lance-shaped leaves.

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. 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.

Cultivars in the Tiny Series are slightly taller and have bigger flowers than Asiatics in the Pixie series.
