The perfect fusion of a Christmas Lily (L. longiflorum) and a Californian leopard lily species, L. pardalinum. The abundant, pendent blooms have recurved petals in striking shades of russet red with a heart of gold. The flowers have a soft fragrance and last well in a vase.
A robust choice with plenty of flower power, this lily loves a humus rich, well drained soil and full sun to part shade position. The foliage is similar to the Christmas Lily and the flowers follow the form of the L. pardalinum – it really is the best of both worlds.
It is a good idea to fertilise your lilies, they are hungry bulbs and this will give you the best blooms. Add an organic fertiliser when you first see growth, then again as they are fading. If you are growing your Lilies in pots, fertiliser is even more important and in this case a slow release pellet such as Thrive or a liquid fertiliser is a better option. Water to establish, and keep moist in active growth for best results.
