Lilium (members of which are true lilies) is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs, all with large prominent flowers. Lilies are a group of flowering plants which are important in culture and literature in much of the world. Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere, though their range extends into the northern subtropics. Many other plants have "lily" in their common name but are not related to true lilies.

I think most cases of poisoning have been from cut flowers indoors rather than from plants growing in the garden, there is also some confusion on the subject as some sources say only the pollen is harmful others say the entire plant , some say only true lilies are poisonous others say any type of Lily.

Chionodoxas and aconites - advice?

Posted: 25/02/2015 at 22:37

They do best in a sunny or lightly shaded spot with well drained soil, they are like snowdrops in that the bulbs should not dry out, so best planted in the green.

Aconites are difficult to establish, if  they don't like the spot you planted them in they won't reappear.
