DescriptionTry these pure white lilies in an all white garden that will glow in the night.
Receive a standing ovation from your neighbours as you roll out this luxurious carpet of colour-saturated Asiatic lilies. Hardy buds atop very strong stems come in red, pink, white and a mixture and are very easy to grow. Although their height is smaller in scale, flower sizes match those of full-size Asiatic lilies. Blooms are 5–6" across and return year after year, spreading in number and beauty. All they need is a well-drained, undisturbed location. Parade these gems in front of a garden border or plant en masse for a phenomenal garden display. Showcase them inside as a glamorous bouquet. Lilium asiatic

What an impact in my garden!!
Jul 6, 2013 | By NLee
"I planted these lilies en masse (30 bulbs) last fall, and they erupted in blooms two weeks ago. Every bulb I planted produced a stalk with 6 or more buds, and I think some bulbs even produced two stalks. The lilies are still going strong, even in our current heatwave. I just hope that these lilies stay short, as a reviewer on Breck's sister site said that her carpet border lilies started out short, then grew to 30 or so tall the third year. If these are in fact Lily 'New Wave' (as identified on the sister site using the exact same photo that Breck's has on its site) then they will grow tall and I'll be very upset. Oh yes, the bulbs I bought were 16-18 cm., and I notice that the ones offered this year are only 14-16 cm., so that will make a difference in the bud count (although perhaps only the first bloom year)."

I think the best way to utilize these are in the front of the garden mixed w/ other flowering plant 8-12" tall
