An amazing sight in early to midsummer, the abundant blooms of Red Highland cover the planting area with bright, fiery red color and gorgeous flower forms. This eye-catching Asiatic type produces up to eight beautiful blooms per sturdy stem (although five is the plant average), quickly creating an entire bouquet or arrangement with just one snip of the secateurs. The flowers are quite large—7" across—and feature dark red centers that add extra depth to the already fine display. Asiatic lilies are easy to grow and perennialize like a dream. Tall 40" stems make Red Highland an ideal back border choice, as well as a cutting garden go-to. Exquisite in mass plantings.
