Lilium Golden Splendour.This fully hardy Lily is a must for the North east garden.
The large yellow trumpet flowers with deep burgundy/red stripes on the outside of the petals are extremely fragrant. Golden splendour performs very well without deterioration year after year unlike many of the Liliums.
This one in our garden is positioned under an arch where I look forward to its return every Summer.
Plant bulbs in Autumn in a sunny position where they have shade at the base, although Spring planting would be fine if necessary. Always best to plant Lilies deep, at least twice there own depth. Golden splendour also performs very well if planted in deep containers using John innes no. 2 compost. Over winter the pots in the cold greenhouse, placing them outdoors in early April.
Go on plant this hardy Lily and fill your garden in July/August with a glorious perfume.
