Sensational new Asiatic lily which produces deep purple, almost black flowers which blend into maroon red at the edges. These sturdy lilies are the ideal choice for pots as they bear small but very sturdy flowers, but can also be planted as part of a successful summer border display. The deep colouring of Mapira will enhance zesty yellow flowers, blend into a softly romantic display amongst pinks and reds, or grab the eye placed alongside bright oranges. 14/16cm bulbs supplied. Height 120cm.

Planting

Soil Type

Fertile, well drained

When planting, each bulb should be surrounded with a little sharp sand both under and above the bulb to keep slugs away and to ward off excessive wetness. As most liliums are stem rooting we strongly recommend you plant at 15cm deep. They give a much better display when planted in clumps of 3, 6 or 12 bulbs (45cm apart).
Lilium bulbs will greatly appreciate the shelter of low growing shrubs or other plants near their roots. In active growth, apply water freely and it is advised that every two weeks you apply a high potash liquid fertilizer.
