Lilium Trumpet Regale Album Extra Large
Extra-large bulbs will produce stems of top-class flowers, exuding elegance on lilium ‘Regale Album’.
Creamy buds with a touch of pink open up during July and August to expose the large and graceful, pure white trumpets. A glowing yellow throat illuminates the sophisticated flowers from within – spectacular, swaying in a border under late-summer sunshine.
The flowers are highly-scented, long-lasting and wonderful for cutting and bringing inside.
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.
