Description

‘Cam Chartreuse’ A beautiful white, flat-faced Oriental Hybrid that opens with greenish bands that mature to yellow.  Large, perfumed, pendant to out-facing flowers. Grows to at least 1.2 mt. with at least 20 flowers in January.  Very vigorous. Plant in an elevated position for best effect from pendant flowers.  Rain resistant.

The flowers of ‘Cam Chartreuse’ 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.

A new release in 2020. “I’ve just lifted these today  they have got to be the most vigorous Oriental I have ever seen”.

Cam Chartreuse

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

Other Oriental Hybrid Liliums offered this year include ‘Cam Alpha’, ‘Cam Bounty’, ‘Cam Finesse’, ‘Cam Fuchsia’ and ‘Cam Shiraz’.

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 200-300 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.
