‘Cam Sirius’ A beautiful, white, recurved Oriental Hybrid with yellow bands.

Large, perfumed flowers with strong green nectaries. Flowers open with a greenish tinge. Grows to at least 1.2 mt. with 20 flowers in late January & early February.

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

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.
