Golden Joy Asiatic Lily
Dwarf Asiatic lily ‘Golden Joy’ has large buds which open to reveal vivid yellow petals with an orange blush in the center. It blooms in June on 18″ stems.
Asiatic Lilies are an easy-to-grow colorful addition to any garden! They come in almost every color of the rainbow and bloom June to July.
The Asiatics are the hardiest of all the lily hybrids. They do very well in U.S.D.A. Zones 3 to 10, are easiest for the beginner, multiply the fastest, and are the first to flower each season. They come in a wide range of colors — white, yellow, orange, red, pink and all shades and color combinations, except the color blue. Flowers are mostly upfacing with a few dainty garden gems carrying outfacing or pendant blooms; all will be exciting when the buds unfurl. These hybrids multiply rapidly and bloom over a long season. Although generally unscented, a light scent can be discerned on warm, still days.
Asiatic lilies are the easiest and most reliable in the average garden. They bloom early, usually in June and July. Stems are strong and erect, ranging in height from 14 inches to 60 inches. Most are hardy enough to grow in USDA zones 3-10. Bulbs can be left in the ground and multiply readily when planted in an ideal location. This is a great benefit and requires no work on the part of the gardener.
