About Lily Zambesi

The first white OT lily in the Oriental Trumpet collection.

Lily Zambesi

Lily OT Zambesi is originally the first white OT lily in the Oriental Trumpet collection. The Zambesi lily continues to stand out with its beautifully structured stem.

Crossing of Orientals and Trumpets

OT Liliums, Orienpet, or Oriental Trumpet Hybrids, are the result of crossing Oriental lilies with Trumpet lilies in an effort to increase the color range of the Orientals without sacrificing the fragrance.

Lily Zambesi Care Tips

  • Always use a clean vase (do not use metal or antique crystal vases) and fresh COLD tap water
  • Add flower food: following the instructions on the back of the pack regarding the volume of water
  • Cut at least 2 cm off the stem, yet 5-10 cm is better
  • Cut the stems with a sharp, clean knife or secateurs at an angle to prevent damaging and flattening of the stem
  • Remove lower leaves which otherwise will be in the vase water
  • Be careful where you place your (mono) bouquet: flowers don’t like draughts, direct sunlight, proximity to a heater, smoke, or the ethylene gasses of ripening fruits!
  • Top up with fresh water and the same flower food when the water has decreased to about 1/3 of the height of the vase
