Celebrated for its intense and delicious fragrance, the Madonna Lily bears glistening, sizeable, pure white trumpets facing outward, and flushed yellow at the base, with bright yellow pollen. It is often seen in religious paintings as it was depicted for centuries as the symbol of Mary and the Catholic Church, being a symbol of purity and virtue. Long-lived and easy to grow it is a valuable addition to every garden.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
