Lilium Oriental Miss Peculier
Large blooms of clotted cream, enriched with mango centres top the towering stems of Oriental Trumpet hybrid lily ‘Miss Peculier.’
From July until August, the spectacular, classy flowers unfold from dusky-purple buds, emitting a heady fragrance which fills the summer air with perfume.
A green star sits in the heart of each bloom, holding a cluster of lime stamens and velvety rust-orange anthers.
Miss Peculier makes a showy cut flower and can be grown in large containers and sunny garden borders.
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.
