Huge lime-green bells with hearts of deep maroon, hang from strong stems in June and July.

Prefers cool, acidic soil in part shade. Height 60-90cm (24-36"). Spread 15cm (6"). Hardy bulbous perennial. Supplied as young plants.

Additional Information

Fragrant. Plant 3 times the depth of the bulb. Throughout active growth water Lilium freely especially during periods of drought. Ensure the roots are kept cool and are not exposed to direct sunlight. Leave the foliage in place until it starts to turn brown as this will absorb energy for the following season. Apply a mulch during the winter to retain moisture levels whilst suppressing weeds. Please be aware the pollen and bulbs are HIGHLY TOXIC to animals and humans. Hardy bulbous perennial.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
