Plant Information

Yes, this is that huge pure white lily everyone loves. And the ones from your garden will be just as spectacular as the ones you always see at the florist. Because Casa Blanca is a snap to grow, as long as you give it space and well-drained soil. And as if its huge blooms weren't enough, this beauty rewards you with up to 8 flowers per stem.

This is the one that smells so sweet that one stem perfumes a whole room. So it belongs both in the cutting garden and the non-cutting garden, where its strong stems will need no staking, and its big beautiful blooms will light up the whole place after most other flowers are finished.

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.

2016 is the third summer I've had these and they have been great every year. A few are close to 6'-0" in height and have 12-13 blooms per stem. The first few years they were closer to the description of 48" - with anywhere from 5-7 blooms. The weather this year might have helped them get huge (wet and not very hot). I have them planted in various spots, half sun/half shade and full sun. They do well in both.

    Comments about American Meadows Casa Blanca Oriental Lily Bulbs:

    Bought it because of it's reputation for scent. Planted some in the ground, which did OK, and 3 bulbs in a pot so that I could bring it indoors when it bloomed to enjoy the scent. That worked out well, except that only 2 out of the 3 bulbs lived and bloomed in the pot. But it is fun to have them indoors for awhile.

      Comments about American Meadows Casa Blanca Oriental Lily Bulbs:

      Since this is a fall planting, it is impossible, at the moment, to describe the bulbs as they begin to grow in the Spring of 2018. However, the bulbs arrived in a sturdy box, and all looked in good health. Several were almost in the size of a baseball - and that would classify as a "Monster Bulb".

            I bought these lilies because Our yard needed more white, plus, I love the fragrance. When they came up this year, I was really excited, because they were more than I really had expected. They are so beautiful, and fragrant. I love walking out the front door and seeing, and smelling, them. I've ordered more lilies, and look forward to seeing them all next year.

                These are the most successful time I have grown calls in a pot. a tidy handful of delicate blooming that lasted several weeks. They were terribly sensistive to moisture levels in the pot, though, and required pretty consistent monitoring.

                        Wherever this Lily is planted it will take center stage. The bloom is big and is such a pure bright white, it pops right out of the background. I've had people stop in front of the house to look at them.

                          These grew to about 48 inches with huge stark white blooms (about 5-7 per stem). I have a lot of lilies in my garden but these are definitely my favorite! They bloom late July to early August in Central New York (Zone 5b).

                              In most cases each stalk had between 5 to 8 blooms on it. It was planted in well drained soil, with lots of sun. The flowers have a huge scent, and the bumble bees love them.

                              Mine grew to be about 3 to 4 ft tall with a minimum of 4 blooms, but usually 5 or 6 blooms per stem. Not too much "leafiness". Each bloom spans about as wide as my splayed hand and are a brilliant white with the prettiest sort of curl on the petals. They last up to 10 days -- sometimes more if I keep the ends trimmed. The fragrance of one full stem easily fills the room. Mine were grown in So Cal in mostly sunlight/dappled shade. Beautiful flowers and so satisfying to grow, cut and share.

                                This is a beautiful lilly with wonderful scent. It is quite tall so I would plant it in the back (back border). The flowers stay fresh for a long time after they were cut. Everyone was impressed with this lily both in my garden and in my vase.

                                Q & A

                                Plant With These:

                                USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                                To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                                • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                                • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                                Find Your Planting Zone:
