These are rhizomes of the lovely Arum Lily, originally from the Cape Floral Kingdom in South Africa and grow in the UK since the 17th century. Arum lilies have big glossy green leaves and striking white trumpet shaped flowers, looking lovely in a well watered or pond-side location. A very good cut flower, popular in wedding bouquets.
Arum Lilies grow to a height of 60-90cm and prefer sunny, moist and fertile conditions. They are borderline hardy, and will survive in most UK gardens over the winter if the rhizomes are planted at least 15cm below the ground and the crown is mulched over the winter. In colder gardens, lift the rhizomes in autumn, store frost-free in winter and replant in spring. Or bring indoors and grow as a house plant.
These are good-sized nursery-raised rhizomes that flower in the first season.
Pack of 3 bulbs/rhizomes. Plant rhizomes from late autumn onwards (and protect from frost with a mulch) or plant in spring (April). Planting instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
Bulbs are dispatched in protected boxes, and arrive 3-5 working days after payment.
Available in the autumn.
