Lilium ‘Trebbiano’ is a lightly scented Longiflorum Asiatic Lily. The classically-formed flowers are an unusual colour – pale lemon with hints of lime, particularly along the central veins. Dark anthers make a bold contrast against the petals and the angle of the flower gives it a hopeful look.
Large flowers on short (110 cm / 3 ft), sturdy stems make it good for growing in containers and for cutting.
Lilium ‘Trebbiano’ was named after the group of Italian grapes because of its greenish tones. Some bulbs sold under the name have turned out to be pure yellow, so if you’re thinking of acquiring some, use a source you trust.
