Product Information

LILIUM CANDIDUM

or

Madonna Lily

The legendary Madonna Lily is one or our oldest garden flowers and is known to have been grown since before 1100 BC.

It is the traditional lily of the cottage garden, yet is seldom if ever found growing in the wild.

Basal rosettes of broad, bright green leaves appear in late winter but it is in late spring and early summer when Lilium candidum really struts its stuff.

In May and June tall spikes shoot up from the rosette of leaves and these are topped by racemes of between 5 and 10 glistening white trumpet shaped flowers.

The blooms have a distinctive and unusual waxy appearance and are very fragrant, so seductive is the perfume it is often described as “intoxicating”

Bulbs should be planted very shallow, no more than 1 inch deep and like to be tucked away among other plants to help keep them shaded at the base.

They need neutral or alkaline soil but will tolerate dry sites where other lilies would flounder and they simply thrive on thin, chalky ground.

Plant the bulbs as soon as possible after delivery, they will usually take a season to establish and flower but the wait is always well rewarded
