L is for Lilium

Lilium are bulbous perennials with erect stems bearing whorled or spirally arranged leaves and terminal racemes or umbels of bowl-shaped, trumpet-shaped, funnel-shaped or turk’s cap shaped flowers, often fragrant, and white, yellow, orange or red.

They prefer well-drained soil and a sunny position, but are very hardy and will survive very cold winters. They just hate being wet!

      They do well in pots. I have a few coming up now, but I really need some new ones. I just don’t have space for any more pots!
