Lilium Trumpet Golden Splendour
Clusters of zingy, lemon-yellow blooms are held aloft on tall stems, on trumpet-shaped lily ‘Golden Splendour’.
Brilliant for adding a splash of warm, uplifting colour and elegant architecture towards the centre or back of garden borders, this exceptional lily is a prize-winning cultivar - recipient of an award of garden merit from the RHS.
Buds appear in muted purple, striped with green, before bursting into flower during July and August. A sweet fragrance is emitted, especially noticeable on warm evenings, as the buttery blooms open.
To cultivate lilies, choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil, digging a hole 15cm deep. Plant the bulbs 15-23cm apart, ensuring they sit 15cm below the soil surface. Water the surrounding soil well, maintaining soil moisture until growth emerges. Young shoots may be susceptible to slug damage, so use wildlife-friendly methods such as a top layer of sand to protect emerging growth. Most Lilies can also be grown in pots – ensure containers are deep and have large drainage holes in the base. As the majestic stems ascend, they will reach heights of 45-150cm, depending on variety. Support taller cultivars with stakes as they grow. Use dilute, balanced liquid plant feed every two weeks during the summer. Spray as soon as you notice the bright red lily beetle or their larvae.
