Product Information

LILY BULBS

African Queen

First introduced in 1958 and now over fifty years old Lily African Queen is considered an heirloom variety.

Flowering on tall stems covered with lance like leaves it will regularly reach 4-5 feet ensuring that this beautiful lily stands out like a beacon in beds and borders

The blooms, carried in great profusion on large racemes, arrive in July and August.

Emerging from purplish buds the large, vibrant, trumpet or funnel shaped flowers are apricot-melon on the outside and orange apricot on the inside.

Heavily scented, their magnificent perfume simply drifts over the garden on a warm summer evening.

A very showy plant Lily African Queen is stunning when planted en-mass but is also ideal for adding height, colour and scent to a bed or border.

As an alternative they can be planted in deep tubs or containers using a gritty loam based compost and the brightly coloured long lasing blooms ensure they are also in great demand as a cut flower.

Despite the tall stems they require no support and this sturdy habit makes them ideal for very exposed sites.

Faded blooms should be removed as soon as possible to prevent seed heads forming but stems and foliage should be left to wither and die naturally.

When planting lily bulbs it is a good idea to place each one in a bed of sharp sand or grit, this helps to drain away any excess water and thus avoid rot.

Full sun is preferred but partial or dappled shade is acceptable.
