Description

‘Cam Snowball’ A beautiful, crisp, white, recurved Oriental Hybrid that looks like a super-sized Lilium speciosum.

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 Snowball’ 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 Snowball’ part of a new range of Specioum-like hybrids that I hope to introduce over coming 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.

Cam Snowball

 

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‘.

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.
