Space the bulbs out when planting. The distance between plants is three times the width of the bulb. Plant the bulb the depth of three times the bulb's height. Plant the flower bulbs in the sun. Water the bulb immediately after planting. Then the soil should be kept slightly damp.

As soon as possible after receiving the Lilium lankongense bulbs they can be planted. Choose a sunny location or a partially shaded spot. Prepare a suitable hole in loose, humus rich soil and plant the bulbs approximately 12 to 15 cm deep and 15 cm apart , point up. Surround the bulbs with a little sharp sand - this will deter slugs.
Water immediately after planting, during the growth period keep the soil moist. You can improve your soil by adding compost and granulated cow manure.
Asian Lily in the garden
The Asiatic has a natural appearance and is a suitable plant for combining. For example it will look at home planted in the border between other perennials. Or plant a row of them in front of flowering shrubs. Lilium lankongense also grows well in pots and planters. For a wonderful sight fill an entire planter with these lovely lilies – plant them in the pot spaced about 20 cm apart.
The Lilium lankongense bulbs can remain in the same spot for years. For a more profuse growth, we recommend adding plant food every two weeks when watering.
Lilies can suffer from the lily beetle which is bright red in colour (the grubs are yellow). To prevent them from eating the leaves and other arterial parts of the lily, remove the beetles, eggs or grubs and destroy them.
During winter, cover the Lily bulbs with a layer of leaf litter to protect them from severe frost. Lily bulbs grown in pots can be overwintered in a frost-free area
Asian Lily in the right spot
The Asian Lily loves to face the warm sun, but it is important to keep their 'feet' cool. For this to be achieved, plant low growing plants around the lilies to protect the soil. Don't place your pot of lilies in complete sunshine! Choose a sheltered spot.
The Lilium lankongense is a well known Chinese flower. The pink and white petals of the Lilium lankongense elegantly fold back and are reminiscent of an old fashioned Turkish hat. Each petal is dotted with black spots. They have very long stamens that protrude from the centre of the flower. Each stem produces 6-12 of these lovely flowers in an open bunch.
Lilies are very popular as cut flowers and any room is soon filled with their lovely fragrance. Definitely plant a group of lilies in your flower garden. To avoid pollen stains while cutting the lilies, make sure the anthers of the flower are facing away from you or remove them before arranging the flowers (although this rather detracts from the appearance of the flower).
