Lily Asiatic

Asiatic lilies are a large and ever-expanding group of upright focal flowers with 3, 4, 5, even 6 blooms per stem. The modern lily we know today was developed in the 1940s by Jan de Graaff in Oregon. It is hard to imagine now, but up until then, all Asiatic lilies had blooms that hung downwards. The first breakthrough was ‘Enchantment’, an orange upward facing lily that was the preeminent variety from the 1970s through the 1990s. The reason this was such a critical breakthrough, is that visually and psychologically, flowers that hang down appear to be in a state of senescence. Today there are many many varieties of Asiatic lilies in a wide spectrum of colors, and the pendant lilies have been all but obliterated as a cut flower.

  • All lilies have anthers that produce significant amounts of pollen that can stain the flower and clothing. It is suggested you remove them as soon as blooms start to open.
