Welcome to Cam Lilies – the home of Australian garden lilies.
Our 2021 Season is rapidly coming to a close. All stock will be withdrawn & replanted for next season as time permits over the coming week.
We have an excellent range of Lilies coming up including some very interesting new lines for your garden.
The lack of hot sunny days in summer was quite disappointing for all of us and the Lilies simply don’t like it.
I regret we have no Martagon Lilies this season. Whilst I still grow some Martagons in our garden, I moved all our commercial stock to a friend’s place last year where I hope they will be more at home at altitude and grow more to their full potential. Martagons often tend to sulk for the first year after being moved and it appears that is what they have done. We hope to restore some to our list for next year.
Our focus is on hardy garden Lilies, but we also grow a range of species Liliums.
Cam Lilies is a small grower of Lilium bulbs based at Camdale in North-west Tasmania. Most of our lines are bred here by Neil Jordan, or sometimes selected, registered and named by us from lilies grown from seed from other growers around the globe.
Liliums are deciduous by nature. This means that they die down after flowering, drawing their nutrients back into the bulb ready to produce fresh new growth in late spring.
Lifting bulbs is only possible after they have become dormant. Hence we load all available bulbs onto our Online Shop early in June of each year. We are unable to supply bulbs at other times of the year.
