From July to September this white form of African lily blooms with ‘trumpet-shaped’ flowers upon rigid green stalks. It is an excellent addition to gardens and thrives in a sunny border or patio container and in fertile, moist, and well-drained soil. If temperatures drop below zero, container specimens need to be overwintered in a frost-free environment.
Plant Care: You should keep plants well-watered during the growing season and feed them with a balanced liquid fertiliser every month until they bloom. After the plant blooms, ease back on watering and feeding so the leaves can toughen up. Container-grown specimens should be kept cool in a greenhouse or conservatory by watering sparingly during the winter.
