Globes of deep blue-black trumpet-shaped flowers burst from almost black buds in July and August above evergreen strap-like leaves. This stunning African lily is perfect for the middle of a sunny, moist but well-drained border or a large patio pot. Although hardier than other varieties, in cold exposed areas container-grown specimens will benefit from a deep dry winter mulch.

  • Garden care: Keep well-watered during the growing season, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month from spring until the plant flowers. In cold exposed areas protect the crown of the plant with a deep dry winter mulch.
