This European lily is a native of woodlands and deciduous forests, and also grows well in taller grass. As a result, it is a wonderful variety for naturalising near shrubs and trees, or in a wildflower garden where it can be planted in groups that are then left undisturbed. The bulbs are very shallow and are best kept away from cultivated borders where they may be damaged. The strange opulent colouring of the pendent flowers endears them even to gardeners who do not like the strong scent, and when planted in groups they can make a bold statement.
