  • Other features: contact with the foliage may cause skin irritation


Pinkish-purple flowers which are heavily flecked with chocolate coloured markings on their creamy-white inner petals and lightly dappled on the outer tepals look magnificent when planted with rich plums, purples and soft lilacs.

  • Garden care: Always wear gloves when working with Peruvian lilies since contact with the foliage may cause skin irritation. After flowering cut back the faded flower-stems. In autumn provide a dry mulch of bracken or bark chippings to protect young plants.
