Description

A fabulous rarity making slender stems up to 120 cm tall which are clothed in narrow leaves. Enormous fragrant flowers finally open at the crown, very late in the season and rarely before October or November! When these open the weight of the large white chalices can actually bow the plant, they truly are one of the most glorious autumnal lilies. This superb but rarely encountered Himalayan Lily performs best in nice humus-rich soil in light shade. It is fully hardy and not difficult to grow, but is seldom seen in view of its late flowering season! Make your garden an autumn showpiece. Bulbs are one of the most expensive on the market!

Sowing Advice

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.
