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


Upright leafy stems are crowned with open clusters of pink-flushed white blooms which are irregularly striped with russet brown. Ideal for adding bright colour to the summer border, they will slowly spread to form good-sized clumps.

  • 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.
