Lilies are well suited to growing in containers, where they can be positioned in borders as and when you need them.

Hardy Asiatic hybrid lilies tend to bloom earlier than other varieties, and have straight, sturdy stems and lots of star-shaped blooms, making them excellent for cutting. They come in a range of colours from soft pastels to bold reds and oranges.
