Plant details

Star Gazer' is a popular lily that is particularly well-suited to growing in deep pots on the patio, as well as in the border. In late summer it bears large, fragrant, star-shaped, deep pink flowers with maroon spots. 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.
