    A gorgeous autumn-flowering bulb, this belladonna lily produces long purple or purple-green stems, topped with massive funnel-shaped, scented pink flowers. The long fleshy, strap-like leaves are then produced after flowering. It looks lovely when grown in pots on the patio, or in milder climates in the middle of a warm, sunny border.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs just below the soil in spring or late summer. During the growing season water frequently and feed every month with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Keep dry over winter.
  • Harmful if eaten
