    A beautiful lily with stout stems that bear large, scented, slightly nodding, trumpet-shaped flowers that are purple-pink with bright orange anthers. The gorgeous blooms are produced in midsummer and this is a great lily for the back of a sunny border where they can easily reach 2m (6ft) tall. Universally loved for their big showy flowers, these lilies make excellent cut-flowers.

  • 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 deep in a well-drained soil, enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Space them between 15 - 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.
