Description

Lilium ‘Happy Love’ Is the cupid of lilies, striking ardour into the hearts of observers with its seductive, velvety blooms. The irresistible burgundy petals have a mahogany-like lustre, with maroon speckled throats. Sizeable, upward-facing flowers are perched on top of compact stems of 45cm – ideal for creating dramatic impact in confined spaces and containers. The rich, wine-red colouring pairs well with other dark, moody hues, and brings depth to brighter palettes. ‘Happy Love’ is equally alluring to bees and butterflies, who will be enticed into your garden by the pollen-laden stamens.

Care Guide

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.
