Last year I planted some asiatic lily bulbs. they have grown well this year {especially with me being a first time gardener!!}, but the actual blooms are a rich deep red. i have never seen lillies this shade before, is it unusual or quite a common colour for this type of flower? the only colours i have seen are white, orange ,yellow and pink. are there also any other colours???

Asiatic lilies are available in a wide range of colors including bicolors; you will find them in vivid deep reds to pale silvery pastels but the range is basically red, orange, yellow, pink and white. Breeders are always hard at work developing newer and showier types including, recently, double flowered forms as well as looking for improved garden performance. Enjoy!
