Lilium orange triumph
Lilium orang3 triumph was bred in 1938 and is one of the oldest lily hybrids still grown today. It was very common in bulb catalogues in the 1960's and 70's and could still be found in garden centers in the late 90's and early 00's. It produces huge bulbs in time and it was always a great pleasure back in the year 2000/2001 to go to the local garden center and find these bulbs available in bags in the bulb section. These very large bulbs produce sturdy stems with healthy dark green leaves and large cup shaped orange flowers with hairy bud opening and gleaming orange fragrant flowers which is quite unusual for an Asiatic hybrid. Flowering in May/June.
This is not the easiest lily hybrid to grow, it needs excellent drainage in order not to rot in the long run especially during wet winters. If you find a spot that it likes in the garden, its preferable to leave it in that spot without moving it around too much which it also dislikes.
