Description

‘Cam Alpha’ A beautiful white, flat-faced Oriental Hybrid with golden bands & fine rose spots.  Large, perfumed, pendant to out-facing flowers. Grows to at least 1.5 mt. with up to 30 flowers in January.  Very vigorous. Plant in an elevated position for best effect from pendant flowers.  Rain resistant.

The flowers of ‘Cam Alpha’ are slightly out-facing, pendants. This means that, unlike many Lilies, they are relatively rain resistant, giving a longer flowering period in the garden. They also have secondary buds, which further extend the flowering period.

‘Cam Alpha’ is a multi-award winner over several years now and has always received excellent reviews from many satisfied growers. It has also been a very successful parent in recent breeding programs.

'Cam Alpha'

This Lily was bred & introduced by Neil Jordan & is a Cam Lilies exclusive.

Other Oriental Hybrid Liliums offered this year include ‘Cam Advance‘, ‘Cam Bounty’, ‘Cam Chartreuse‘, ‘Cam Finesse’, ‘Cam Fuchsia’ and ‘Cam Shiraz’. Also see our amazing new Speciosum Hybrids.

Oriental Hybrid Liliums are large, perfumed, and very beautiful Lilies. They flower here in late January.

Orientals like an open, more acid soil with plenty of organic matter. Plant 200 mm deep with good drainage. A good mulch will reduce moisture loss and help protect from harsh summer sun. Will handle full sun, but is always better with some shade.

Like all Liliums these are deciduous. Consequently, they will die back after flowering and re-emerge in spring, completely refreshed. This means that any damage from the past year is past history. Remove old stems when all the green colour has gone. This allows the energy of each plant to be drawn down into the bulb ready for next season.
