Plant details

This beautiful lily produces large, fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers, which brownish purple on the outside and yellow or orange-apricot inside. The bulbs are best planted in autumn while they are still plump. They should go in 2-3 times their own depth and at the equivalent spacing between bulbs. In the border, they enjoy well-drained soil in full sun, with shade at the base. Alternatively they can be planted in deep containers, using loam-based compost, such as John Innes No2.
