This dramatic looking lily is one of the last lilies to flower each summer, so place it somewhere that it will be seen and enjoyed. It flowers profusely, and its bold dark-pink speckled petals curl back on themselves as the buds open. These lilies can't cope with lime or chalky soil, so it is essential to grow them either in acid soil or in pots filled with ericaceous compost. The lily is moderately scented and it is attractive to wildlife, although gardeners should be aware that these lilies are also highly poisonous to domestic cats. Deadhead after flowering and let the stems die back before cutting them back to the ground. Prompt deadheading ensures a vigorous growth the following year.
