    Large (up to 25cm across), trumpet-shaped flowers, form on the stems of this stunning lily in midsummer. Each one is a tropical-looking blend of white, pink and yellow, which makes them really easy to mix. Ideal for adding height to the border in summer, the spectacular blooms could also be cut for the vase.

  • Garden care: Lilies can be planted at any time from early autumn, to mid-spring. Planting in autumn often helps them settle in and become better established before they start to put on their new spring growth, but spring planting is a better option if your soil is heavy and wet during winter. Choose a sunny spot, preferably where the plant receives a little light shade at its base, and plant each bulb 15-20cm (6-8in) deep in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Space them at 30cm intervals and provide support before the flowers appear. Deadhead the faded blooms promptly and cut the dead stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.
