Sheherazade is a striking lily that will make a statement in any garden.The flowers can be up to 18cm's across and are deep crimson-red, edged creamy-white. The entre is green edged greenish-yellow. Often called tree lilies they will grow quite tall as they establish over the years reaching heights of 180cms plus. Grow in groups of 3 or more for the best effect. Lilies are easy to grow and can be left undisturbed in the garden for many years. If planting in heavy soils add a handful of grit to the hole before putting in the lily. Protect young shoots from pests and remember to feed during the flowering stage to ensure they naturalise for years to come. Suitable for alkaline and acid soils.
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.
