Lilium

Lilium

Lilies are versatile, showy plants for the border or for deep containers.

Most are easily grown, given a fertile soil, with varieties available to suit a range of differing conditions, from woodland to sun-baked. Many varieties are richly scented.

All the varieties listed are tolerant of some lime in the soil. Note that most varieties will not achieve optimum height in their first season.
