Fragrance Free Asiatic Lilies
Easy to grow Asiatic lilies to start the lily season in all areas with dependable color and reliability in even the most severe climate. Found in the widest range of color in the Lily bulb kingdom, hybridizers have developed neat and tidy blossoms in pure white, yellow, orange red, pink and all shades and combinations, except the elusive color blue. They multiply well and have unscented blooms, making them perfect for individuals sensitive to fragrance. Wildly adaptable throughout USDA Zones 3 to 10.
Bulb size: Most are five to six inches in circumference, (14/18 cms). All Asiatic lily bulbs sold by B&D Lilies are of mature, blooming size. Breeding background and weather conditions from year to year will greatly influence the bulb size at harvest, some cultivars will always be larger than others at maturity.
On July 30 of 2022, when uploading our Spring 2023 catalog, we announced that most lilies would be in short supply, and as such we are now sold out for this season. For those who missed out on the full listing, there is still hope for Spring 2023 planting in April. Whatever stock is remaining in cold storage will be offered by the dozen, although most will be “odds and ends” in limited quantities.
After 45 years of producing what our customers have told us are the best of the best in lilies, we are retiring after shipping is completed in April. With the lack of available help for planting, harvesting, and processing our bulbs, it seems that the time is right. This being the case, in Mid April, we will be listing whatever stock is remaining. A news letter will be sent out at that time. (There will be no lily bulbs offered for Fall 2023 planting.) For those who have been inquiring about the magnificent hybrids of our longtime friend, Johan Mak, Bob agreed to continue with his selections for shipping and planting during the Spring of 2024. Johan's varieties will be uploaded mid summer after his crop estimates have been completed.
