Growing Oriental lilies in Thailand


Recommended Posts

One of my favorite flowers to grow in Canada was lilies but having not seen them around or available at the flower markets or garden centers I put them on the back burner!

Today I saw the prettiest potted lily outdoors in Samoeng (photo included here) . We live on the mountains here in Samoeng North Western Thailand!

Anyone growing them or seen the bulbs for sale?

These variety of lilies can certainly be secured here - if you don't mind scouting about in the search. 

 

Many local nurseries. 

Local daily markets that have a flora section. 

In country botanical gardens that also sell stock.

Seems it might be a little hot here for lilies but I’m just guessing!

Almost anything grows where I am in Samoeng (if you can keep the bugs down) so I’ll do my best to find them in the markets!

im sure I could order on line if all else fails…

Thank You

I am growing a bunch of these in Rangsit.  I picked them up in Roi Et from a friend of my wife.  They have been flowering one or two at a time all summer. 

I’d like to see some photos some time👍👍

Are you growing them in pots or in the ground?

Full sun or part shade?

Do they have any bug problems?

These came to me in a very crowded pot which they seemed to like. I took them out of the pot and planted them in several locations in the ground, both in sun and partial shade. This is the first year but they seem to be doing ok. You can see in the pix that one just finished flowering.

Haven’t noticed any problems with bugs as yet. 

I grew a lot of them in Canada 🇨🇦 and they don’t seem to have natural enemies once you get them started nicely! I have heard of worms eating the bulbs when they’re first put in the ground so we planted them just before the winter frost….they survived the -20 degrees below nicely! 
Keep me posted on how they’re doing and Thank You for the photos
