About Starlette - Lily Bulbs (Asiatic)

Lilium asiatica

Seed Type Bulb
Plant Type Asiatic

Want to impress your neighbors? The Starlette is one lily that is almost too eyecatching to be real! Its oranges and burgundy-purples are so intense that they have an almost neon effect. They will absolutely dazzle in your borders and containers, and they'll definitely wow up your flower arrangements! If you have a wildflower meadow, plant Starlettes for some added drama. Asiatic lilies do well in full sun or part shade; try to give them at least 6 hours of sun.
