Hardy Lily, Asiatic ‘Elite’

Elite’ is a fiery orange Asiatic lily, featuring clusters of attractive flowers at the top of each stem. This lily generally grows about 3′ tall and begins to bloom in late June to early July.

Hardy perennial that will multiply year after year when planted in the garden. As soon as the bloom has faded, remove it so seeds do not form. Do not remove too much stem and foliage with the blossom as these are needed to build for the next year’s growth. Ideal for planting in the perennial garden, in containers or for cut flowers. These lilies are simply stunning in mass and are a great accent plant individually. They are of sturdy habit and do not require any support. Ideal for very exposed gardens.
