Creamy white flowers with lightly flushed purple edges and yellowish centre. Bred by crossing the oriental types with trumpet lilies, resulting in Orienpets which are sweetly scented and the flowers will hang pendulous. . Performs well in containers or borders and for the best results plant in groups of 3 or more.
Lilies are an excellent garden plant and can 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.
