Differences in Asiatic Lilies

botanicatMay 30, 2008

I have several lilies that I think are Asiatic. Some of them have only one flower per stalk and some have multiple. I know the difference between Asiatic and Oriental lilies such as Stargazers so I know the single-flowered ones are not Oriental. Is the number of flowers per stalk and indication of type of Asiatic or is just individual species difference? Thanks for your input.

The number of flowers per stalk depends mainly on the size of the bulb. All true Lilies have multiple-flowered stalks. I like this site because it gives the bud count per bulb size for different Lily cultivars. See chart on the middle part of the page.
