Description
Cocktail Twin’s stunning color combination makes this Lily a knock-out both in the garden and cut for gorgeous summer bouquets.

ABC LILY PHOTO Spectacular lilies for your garden; it's easy. Everybody loves lilies, and today's hybrids are a snap to grow, unlike some of the more difficult ones of the past. Today's favorites are no more work than growing a tulip or daffodil. First, take a look at the combination photo below. The large picture of a red lily is Stargazer, the most famous Oriental Hybrid. (See lily groups below.) Along with the famous white one, Casa Blanca, and other Oriental Hybrids, it's a big florist's favorite, and the ones in your garden will be just as lovely and fragrant as the ones you buy in any flower shop.

Photos A and B are of 'wild' or species lilies. (See lily groups below.) Photo A is the old favorite, orange Tiger Lily, (See lily groups below.) one of the best for wild meadows since it is tough, dependably perennial and will grow in almost any soil. Photo B is the incredibly beautiful Regal Lily, Lilium regale, the now-famous, highly fragrant white trumpet lily, discovered years ago growing wild in China. It has been used to create a whole new group of hybrids. (See Trumpet Lily group below.)

Photo C shows how beautifully almost any lily works in a mixed garden or with other flowers in a vase. The stunning yellow bi-colored lily shown with red daylilies and gladiolus is the popular Asiatic Hybrid, 'Grand Cru'. (See lily groups below.)


Growing Lilies: True lilies (which don't include daylilies and others which are not in the genus Lilium) are easy to grow today, and more popular every season. Since they are upright and take practically no space at ground level, it's easy to plant lilies between other established perennials and shrubs. Most can also tolerate some shade, which adds versatility for the gardener. There are many lily groups, but to keep it simple, we will consider only a few of the main types that are important to gardeners. Each lily we ship includes complete instructions for planting. So don't hesitate. You can easily bring the spectacular beauty of lily flowers to any summer meadow or garden.

'Wild' Lilies or 'Species' Lilies These are the true wildflowers from the world over. They are the ones all the glamorous hybrids are descended from. We're fortunate to have some of these botanical treasures on our list of lilies this season.

Oriental Hybrid Lilies are the now famous, very fragrant ones with large, flattened flowers such as red Stargazer and white Casa Blanca. These are the ones now so popular in the floral trade, but are also very easy to grow. They bloom from mid-summer through early fall. Most have very large, outward-facing, fragrant flowers.

Asiatic Hybrid Lilies are today's largest group of garden lilies, quite easy to 'naturalize'. This growing group of lilies was begun by hybridizers in the US, and were first called 'Mid-Century Hybrids.' Compared to Orientals, the Asiatic Hybrid lilies bloom earlier (early to mid summer), the plants are shorter, the flowers a bit smaller, and most blooms are upward-facing and star-shaped. Some of the most famous Asiatic Hybrids are yellow 'Connecticut King,' and the famous red, 'Gran Paradiso.'

Tiger Lilies. This group is led by the famous old orange wild lily, which used to be called Lilium tigrinum. Botanists have changed that to Lilum lancifolium, but that doesn't stop most people (including us) from using the old name 'tigrinum.' From the original orange, the hybridizers have created new colors from white to pink. All have the large flowers, black spots, and tough perennial qualities of the original. (By the way, don't call any old spotted orange lily 'tiger lily'. This one is the real thing, and no lily common name is more mis-used.)

Trumpet Lilies Sometimes called 'Aurelian Hybrids' or other names, the large, tall trumpet lilies are all descended from The Regal Lily, a white wild species lily from China. All are incredibly fragrant, and wonderful for cutting. They grow tall, and often need staking, since a well-grown stalk can have over 15 huge flowers.

              Comments about Double Asiatic Lily Bulbs Cocktail Twins, Double Asiatic Lily Bulbs Cocktail Twins:

              One of the nicest bulbs ordered and performed well. The so-called double petal in no longer a petal. It has "morphed" into a structure that looks like an arrowhead and is extremely pretty. I planted the bulbs a bit later than planned, and they still grew well and bloomed better than expected. The only way I could describe the color is really dark salmon and brilliant.
