The world of lilies has been changing right before our eyes for the last two decades. The traditional Asiatic lily is now a thing of the past and the age of the “Longiflorum Asiatic Hybrid” is upon us.
This sea-change has occurred since the mid-nineties and now LA Hybrids have eclipsed Asiatics as the premiere non-Oriental based lily.
This is a classic case of innovation. The improved genetics of LA Hybrids have led to a superior cut flower. Lane DeVries and the Sun Valley team have been early adopters of growing LA Hybrids, and we now grow only the best varieties, hence we have branded these lilies as “Royal Lilies.”
