Lilium 'African Queen'. Beautiful scent on this one!


Lilium 'African Queen'.  Beautiful scent on this one!

A tall lily with a beautiful elegant form and rich apricot/ burnt orange colour. I bought three and sadly only one has been successful, but nevertheless, worth doing I think. We'll see if it survives the winter after being planted in the ground later on (it's in a pot at the moment).

Yes, thanks. I love the colour on the back of the petals as well and the scent is really wonderful. I fancied this for a few years and finally got around to giving it a go.

The flowers are very easily scorched. It needs shade.
