‘Cam Roseate’ A beautiful, white, recurved Oriental Hybrid with soft rose shading that looks like a super-sized Lilium speciosum.

Large, perfumed flowers. Grows to at least 1.2 mt. with 20 flowers in late January & early February.

The flowers of ‘Cam Roseate’ 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 Roseate

‘Cam Roseate’ part of a new range of Speciosum-like hybrids that I am introducing over the next few years. They are very much like Lilium speciosum only much larger & more vigorous. They flower here in early February so have the capacity to extend your Lilium flowering period.

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

Other Oriental Hybrid Liliums offered this year include ‘Cam Bounty’, ‘Cam Chartreuse‘,  ‘Cam Sirius’ & ‘Cloud Land’.

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.
