Product Details
An exceptional species of lily which always catches attention at flower shows. Stoloniferous in nature this species produces thin but very rigid stems carrying broad lanceolate deep green foliage, the stems occasionally purple. The flowers are held in small numbers - usually no more than 3 or so on this clone ( there would appear to be two clones, ours is the shorter clone which requires no extra support). Each flower is slightly pendulous and up to 12 cms wide with a fine scent. Colour is greenish with almost half of the flower from the throat outwards being a chocolatey-red colour. Please note that the picture is illuminated from the back which lightens the colour. It requires a position in the garden which is moderately moist and fertile through the summer months when its in growth but it must be well drained through winter.
