    Sprays of magnificent pure white flowers with pink spots and soft pink down the centre of each petal and lovely red stamens. The flowers appear in midsummer, and are one of the all time favourite summer-flowering bulb. Universally loved for their big showy flowers, these lilies make excellent cut-flowers.

    The RSPCA have reported that all parts of the lily can be fatal to cats, including the flower, leaves and pollen. For more information visit Rspca.org

  • 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 approximately 30cm (12") 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.
