Description

This red lily is one of the most successful of the hundreds of Asiatic Hybrids. Introduced years ago, its still the best-selling red, famous for true color and strong growth. Along with orange 'Enchantment', Gran Paradiso helped make the Asiatic Hybrid Lilies the huge success they are today. A mainstay for florist's arrangements. (The ones you grow will be just as beautiful.)

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 Asiatic Lily Bulbs Gran Paradiso:

This is the first year we have had such negative results. We barely got 10% results! Perhaps it was just too hot this summer. VERY FEW bulbs produced. Not sure if I would recommend or not.

    Absolutely Lovely!

    Comments about Asiatic Lily Bulbs Gran Paradiso:

    Of the three bulbs I planted, only two bloomed this year. (You can see the 'dead' flowerhead beside the bloom in the picture). It looks like it started to bud and then just died. On the bloomers, the color is brilliant. Big deep red flowers make a wonderful accent in the back garden. Unfortunately, the china aster and baby snapdragon I seeded in front of the lilies didn't take, so it's a rather barren looking patch with one huge red flower in the midst! My only complaint with the lily itself is the stem strength. The minute that big beautiful bud came out, the stem couldn't hold it up and drooped right over. I'm hoping that's caused by a soil problem that will correct next year with extra compost and care. Another winner from American Meadows!
