It takes several years for this enormous Lily to build up enough strength to flower but when it eventually does so it is extremely impressive. Huge white trumpets with maroon throats crown the towering stems. May-Jul. H200cm S50cm.
Plant at soil level in moist, humus-rich conditions in semi-shade. Intolerant of hot or dry sites. The bulbs die after flowering but usually produce offsets and copious amounts of seed. It takes 5-7 years to produce flowering size plants from seed. The dried seed heads can be used in flower arrangements.
Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and we also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
