Harmon Hill - Liliums (bulb lilies Asiatic, Orientals, Orienpets)

We have added another 40+ display varieties of Lilium and now have over 100 varieties on Display and probably 30+ varieties for sale in Pots. Single stem pots are $15 each and those with 2 stems or more are $20 each.

We also finally have obtained a small supply of the Orienpet variety Carbonero that so many customers have asked to buy the past two seasons, but were not available. We have 10 of these available at $20 each and they are limited to one per customer so that more people can grow this wonderful plant. In hindsight I should have bought more but if the deer chews the top off my display plant I could end up with 10 plants that do not sell.

We do not ship the potted Liliums, only available to our walk-in customers. If we get time we will add a list here of the Liliums available for sale. The available list changes every year and we often only have two per variety for sale.

The Red Lily Leaf Beatle is a significant pest here in New England and we advise our customers not to buy these if they are unwilling to spray. We have used Bayer Rose and Garden spray as both a systemic and contact insecticide very effectively. It lasts for about 30 days so we often only have to spray 2 or 3 times a season. When spraying, only spray the middle and lower foliage and the visible beetles and/or their disgusting larvae. Do not spray the buds as it can disfigure the blooms. We also sometimes apply the Bayer Granules in the early spring as it is a fertilizer and a systemic as the beetles are often waiting as soon as the plants break the surface in the Spring. Some years a late frost kills the first set of beetles and gives us a break on one of the sprayings. In our opinion 2 or 3 sprayings a year is not too much of a price to pay in order to enjoy these amazingly beautiful plants.

Voles and sometimes chipmunks can pray on Lilium bulbs and if you visit the garden you will notice that a lot of our Display Liliums are planted in cages to protect them from these little buggers.

The Asiatics bloom around the 4th of July, they tend to be shorter, 3-4 feet, lack fragrance but multiply quite quickly. The Orientals and Orienpets are taller 4-6 feet tall respectively once mature in 3 years, they tend to be very fragrant but also tend to be much slower at increasing than their Asiatic relatives and bloom in late July, the same as peak daylily bloom. This is why we grow fewer Asiatics for sale as we do not have lots of walk-in customers when the Asiatics bloom around the 4th of July.

Here are a few pictures of our favorite Liliums:
