  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: slow growing to average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The broad, heart-shaped outer petals have an apricot-pink flare running through their centre, while the thinner inner petals have a golden band, a pink tip and rich plum coloured markings.

In subsequent autumns, provide a dry mulch of bracken or bark chippings will help protect the crowns. After flowering cut back the faded flower-stems, but make sure you always wear gloves when working with Peruvian lilies, as contact with the foliage may cause skin irritation.
