What to Look for When Purchasing

At the time of harvest, one bud should show color (but not open). LAs should be purchased with tight buds beginning to show color. Number of flower buds per stem is an important characteristic. Look for transparent, dried or dropped flower buds which are signs of ethylene damage.

Foam Info

Leaf yellowing can be an issue in foam.

Design Tips

LA Hybrids' blooms are bigger than traditional Asiatics, their vase life is the longest of any lily, and they boast the widest variety of colors. Not only that, they are virtually scentless--perfect for those who have sensitive noses or allergies. Use odd numbers of stems for a more interesting design. Arrange lilies at varying heights to contrast colors and sizes. Arrange all the lilies first then add other flowers to ensure even space. Remove the yellow anthers once the flower is fully opened. This prevents pollen from staining the petals and helps prolong the flower's bloom.

Ethylene Sensitivity

Lilies are very ethylene sensitive. Treat them with an ethylene action inhibitor to help prevent ethylene damage.

Pest & Disease Information

Susceptible to Botrytis.

Troubleshooting

To prevent bud drop or drying, use an ethylene action inhibitor treatment. For premature leaf yellowing, use an anti-yellowing treatment at farm level after harvest, and use bulb crop or lily specific flower food. Pollen sheds stain whatever they touch. Remove them when the flower opens.
