Description

‘Cam Shiraz’ is a beautiful white, bowl-shaped Oriental Hybrid with purplish-red bands, flares & spots.  Large, perfumed, out-facing flowers. Grows to at least 1 mt. with up to 10 flowers in January.  Ensure good drainage for long life & best results.  Rain resistant.

‘Cam Shiraz’ flowers are out-facing. This means that, unlike upright Lilies, they are relatively rain resistant, giving a longer flowering period in the garden.

'Cam Shiraz'

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

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

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

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.
