Description

Lilum nepalense, the Nepalese Lily, is an utterly beautiful species lily with large pendulous funnel-shaped flowers that are pale green with a splotchy circle of deep maroon around the throat. They thrive in a deep, humus-rich, slightly acid soil and will gradually form a large colony spreading by the stoloniferous roots that grow from the bulbs. Surround the bulbs in a bed of sharp sand to ensure good drainage during the winter. Like most lilies they are very reliable flowering and will benefit from a sheltered position away from strong winds. The blooms should be staked if there is no surrounding foliage to support them. Water well in springtime and summer then stop watering altogether once flowering has finished. Mulch with bark over the winter.

Providing it has good drainage and a generous mulch it is hardy in most parts of the UK. A choice lily species. Recommended.
