I added six new Asiatic Lilies to my garden last fall and the blooms just keep coming. These are the latest that are currently opening and the names makes me hungry. 🙂
Another new one for me this year is this pale yellow ‘Roma’. The flowers do fade to a creamy white with age which is a bit disappointing. I’m assuming that if it gets less direct light the color might stay true. This one gets full sun in the afternoon. Maybe a spot with morning sun would be better to keep it from fading. It is a bit shorter compared to ‘Salsa’ ranging in height from 24-36″. The hardiest zones are the same however.
Last but not least is this pretty pale pink one called ‘Chianti’. It is currently blooming in my Arbor Garden behind the Peace Rose (which is not blooming at the moment) and is already over 36″ tall in height. They all would make great cut flowers. However ‘Chianti’ has such an abundance of buds on one stalk that it would be pretty spectacular. So glad I added more Asiatic Lilies to the garden this past fall. They look great mingling with other perennials and the variety of colors and sizes makes it easy to find just the right one for any garden space, even a container. 🙂
