Lilium asiatic 'Delicate Joy' has an exotic, semi-double, up-facing flowering form with yellow-apricot petals and an inner ring of smaller petals.
Lilium 'Delicate Joy' is a new hybrid that will definitely steal hearts with its exquisite beauty. This Asiatic lily gives a tropical appearance with large, 3 - 6 inch wide, up-facing, semi-double blooms of lemon-yellow petals tipped blush-pink with speckled creamy centres along with a inner ring of unusual narrow petals. Its smaller 24 inch height makes it a stand out in the exotic garden, as cut flowers and on the patio. Pollen free too. For best displays, plant 3 or more bulbs together. Easy to grow. Keep the roots cool and moist during the growing season. Remove developing seed pods after flowering to focus resources back into the bulb. Allow leaves to yellow in the fall before removing stems. Pollinator friendly.
