The Dutch Lily Days, the annual open house event for the Dutch lily industry, will run between 4-7 June 2024 at 13 lily companies across the northwest of Holland and bring together a cross-section of the Dutch lily industry and institutional stakeholders. Bringing a rainbow of colors and a plethora of shapes and sizes are tried and tested lily varieties along with many new market entries.

Now in its 12th year, the Dutch Lily Days will showcase the best of Dutch lily breeders, bulb suppliers, and growers and offer the opportunity to discover the lilies customers will love.

True to tradition, the dates of the Dutch Lily Days coincide more or less with the FlowerTrials, the annual open days for the bedding and garden plant sector. The latter is four days later, so visitors traveling from abroad can easily combine a visit to both events.

Bulb exporter Zabo Plant, celebrating 40 years in business this year, will host the event’s official opening on 4 June.

Visitors of the Open Days will be invited to cast their ballot for their all-time favorite lily. Last year, the double-flowered Oriental ‘Diantha’ by Vletter & Den Haan topped the Dutch Lily League, an annual ranking of the top 50 of the world’s most appreciated lily varieties.

The participants in the 2023 Dutch Lily Days are P. Aker, Boot Flowerbulbs, Van den Bos Flowerbulbs, Bot Flowerbulbs, De Jong Lilies, Lily Company, Onings Holland Flowerbulbs, C. Steenvoorden, Gebr. Vletter & Den Haan, VWS Flowerbulbs, World Breeding, Zabo Plant, and Royal Van Zanten Flowerbulbs.
