Enormous, fragrant trumpets! Part of the next generation of Trumpet Lilies. The lofty stems will stretch to almost 2m once they have settled in.
Trumpet Lily ‘African Queen’ is a fuss free way of adding height, colour and fragrance to your garden. The enormous, deep copper to rockmelon coloured floral trumpets are extremely heat tolerant and grow to a whopping 20cm across. The petal reverse has a strong purple blush.
Trumpet Lily ‘African Queen’ is a hybrid of Lily ‘Copper King’.
Simply plant, fertilise and enjoy. Leave them in the ground to establish and they will bring you years of joy. Choose a humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny location – half a day of sun is perfect. Liliums appreciate afternoon shade, especially in warmer climates.
Water in, and keep moist during active growth. It is a good idea to add fertiliser and mulch in autumn and summer, as the bulbs are coming and going. Don’t forget they are great for picking!
