Casa Blanca Oriental Lily Bulbs
Casa Blanca Oriental Lily
DetailsCasa Blanca Oriental Lily (Lilium Casa Blanca) has huge luminescent white flowers, like white stars, sweetly scented and oh so lovely. Plant in groups of 1-3 bulbs throughout the garden for a fabulous display. Lilies like their heads in the sun and their feet in the shade, so plant them among other perennials to provide shade over their roots where they can grow with their blooms in the sun. Be sure to plant your lily bulbs with six inches of soil above them as this will help stabilize them. Blooming for over four weeks in mid-to-late summer, they make wonderful cut flowers. Pick them when the buds are colored, and the bottom flower is just beginning to open for long lasting blooms. Lily pollen will stain, pull the pollen anthers with a tissue as the bloom opens to remove them. Bees and butterflies love these flowers. Great for a moon garden too. 44-48" tall x 12" wide.

Growing Lilies: You can easily bring the spectacular beauty of lilies into your summer garden. They take very little ground space, so it’s simple to plant them in between other established perennials or shrubs. Most lilies can tolerate some shade and can be planted in spring or fall. Our Lilies are nursery-cultivated in Holland, not collected in the wild.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
