Unlike their oriental cousins, Asiatic lilies are not scented and their flowers tend to be smaller. However, what they lack in size they more than make up for in colour – some of the most brightly coloured lilies, in dazzling shades of yellow, orange, red and almost black, are Asiatic. Asiatic lilies thrive in an alkaline soil, so, unless your soil has a low pH, you can plant bulbs directly in the garden.

Grow Lilium ‘Lollypop’ in well-drained soil in full sun, ideally with a little shade at the base to stop the bulbs drying out. Alternatively the bulbs can be planted in deep containers, in loam-based compost.
