A beautiful lily with stout stems that bear large scented slightly nodding trumpet-shaped flowers that are purple-pink with bright orange anthers. The gorgeous blooms are produced in midsummer and this is a great lily for the back of a sunny border where they can easily reach 2m (6ft) tall. Universally loved for their big showy flowers these lilies make excellent cut-flowers.

The RSPCA have recently reported that all parts of lilies can be fatal to cats including the flower leaves and pollen. For more information click here.

  • Garden care: Bulbs are best planted in autumn but can also be planted in spring. Plant them 15-20cm deep and the equivalent spacing between bulbs. Choose a well drained spot and enrich the soil with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Stake with ring stakes or bamboo canes in spring before the flowers appear. Deadhead the faded blooms and cut the stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.
