Lilium Trumpet Regale Extra Large
A spot should be found in every garden for sweetly-scented, popular and timeless lilium ‘Regale’.
These extra-large, top-class bulbs will produce tall stems of superior flowers, ideal for adding majestic architecture and heavenly fragrance to garden borders, and wonderful for cutting. The bulbs can also be planted in large pots of humus-rich soil with good drainage.
Dusky deep-pink buds open up during July and August to reveal large, showy white flowers with a glowing yellow throat.
Lilium ‘Regale’ has been awarded a prestigious award of garden merit from the RHS for its reliability, floriferous nature and prize-winning, chic looks.
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.
