Within a week, the annual lily festival will recommence for the 11th time. From June 6-9, Onings Holland Flowerbulbs and 13 other Lily companies will open their greenhouses to show the lilies of today and tomorrow. This draws a lot of attention and reaction from all corners of the lily branch. All feedback received is translated and summarised into a ranking called ‘Lily League®.’
Previous Dutch Lily Days events have seen high attendance and sparked a significant interest. Growers, traders, florists, and consumers come together to talk about all the beautiful and various lilies. The main question is: “Which varieties have the most potential?”. This question can be answered by voting for these varieties in the Lily League. After the Dutch Lily Days, Onings will compile a Lily top-50 based on all the casted votes.
A lot of choice
Dark red or bright white. Single or double flowered. With or without pollen. The enormous variety of lilies is shown during the Dutch Lily Days. Onings Holland has more than 600 lily varieties in their greenhouse at Nieuw Tuinen 1a, Honselersdijk. Almost all varieties are flowering between June 6-9. That makes the Dutch Lily Days the perfect occasion to compare hundreds of lily varieties and determine which ones should qualify for the Lily League. Varieties that are not displayed in the Onings greenhouse can still be voted for and also have the chance to achieve a place in the top 50.
