Product Description

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.

Growing at a glance…

Lily bulbs will greatly appreciate the shelter of low growing shrubs or other plants near their roots. In active growth, apply water freely a high potash liquid fertilizer every two weeks or so. When planting, each bulb should surrounded with a little sharp sand both under and above the bulb to keep slugs away and to ward off excessive wetness. As most lilies are stem rooting, we strongly recommend you plant about 15cm deep. They give a much better display when planted in clumps of 3, 6 or 12 bulbs, spaced 45cm apart. Plant from December to April to see them appear in summer.
