Plant details

Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM), this vigorous lily is easy to grow in neutral to alkaline soil in a partially shaded spot, such as under trees. It is found growing wild in Central China and produces tall stems of lightly scented, deep orange flowers, with dark red anthers, in late summer. As a stem rooting type of lily, the bulbs need to be planted at a depth of at least three times the bulb height.
