Patio or Short Potting Liliums are dwarf LA/Asiatic liliums and as the name suggests are shorter than the regular garden liliums. Because of their height, they are perfect for potting. These varieties grow to about 50 cm. These flower early summer and give a magnificent display of blooms. These lilums are also suitable for the garden. 

LILIUMS need to be planted immediately after arrival and should not be allowed to dry out. Plant the bulbs in Winter or early Spring, 20-30 cm apart, in a well fertilized and drained soil. Add some mulch to provide cool growing conditions for the root system. They prefer a sunny or semi shaded (filtered sunlight) position. Excellent cutflowers. It is best to remove old flower heads. Bulbs can be left in the ground and should be fertilized during late Winter. Transplant the bulbs (if needed) during Winter taking care not to let them dry out. They grow to approximately 1 metre or taller. Asiatic Liliums - Grown for their colours, these liliums are hardy and can be left in the ground when planted in a well-drained soil. Also suitable for pots but should be planted in the garden the following year. Water regularly when growing liliums in pots.
