Tiny Diamond Asiatic Lily Care
Plant Tiny Diamond Asiatic Lily in loamy, slightly acidic, well-draining soil. Aim for a pH level of 6.0 to 7.0. If the soil does not drain well and/or lacks sufficient nutrients, amend with peat moss/coco coir/sand/perlite. This ornamental perennial requires approximately 6 hours of sun to thrive. Plant it in full to partial sun. An east-facing spot that provides morning sun but is protected from harsh afternoon rays is ideal. This ornamental perennial has average watering needs. Supply it with about an inch of water per week. To encourage better blooming, apply a fertilizer with less nitrogen than phosphorus/potassium just before this plant begins to flower. Doing so will encourage the plant to focus its energy on flower production versus foliage growth.
During the blooming season, cutting flowers for bouquets is the most enjoyable way to prune Tiny Diamond Asiatic Lily. Otherwise, deadhead spent flowers in order to encourage additional blooms. After the first heavy frost of fall, cut back or shear this ornamental to an inch or so above the soil to prepare for winter.
Tiny Diamond Asiatic Lily Spacing
Offering maximum benefit in spite of its minimal size, Tiny Diamond Asiatic Lily makes a lovely specimen. Common uses include borders, beds, and containers. In a container’s thriller-spiller-filler combination, this ornamental is best utilized as a thriller. When planted en masse for a colorful impact, space each plant about 10 inches apart.
