Anastasia is a sweetly scented lily. Bred by crossing the oriental types with trumpet lilies, resulting in Orienpets which are sweetly scented and the flowers will hang pendulous. Anastasia produces flower that are a strong pink which turn to white at the edges. Performs well in containers or borders and for the best results plant in groups of 3 or more.
Lilies are an excellent garden plant andcan be left undisturbed for years, only needing to be moved when they become overcrowded. Lilies prefer well drained soil, but if this is a problem just add a handful of grit to the hole when planting.
Tip: Protect young shoots from slugs and pests and feed during flowering to help them naturalise and come back year after year.
Aspect: Semi shade to full sun
Soil type: All free draining soils, also happy in heavier clays if grit is placed below the growing bulb.
