Lilium philippinense

Philippine lily

An exquisite, quite rare but tender lily from the Philippines. 

A tall specimen growing up to a metre with beautiful trumpet shaped white flowers that hang downwards. These are nicely flared with a green throat. 

The fragrance is overwhelming. 

Unfortunately this will not withstand cold so is a perfect candidate for growing in a container that can be overwintered indoors.

They prefer a light, well drained soil that has had lime added to the soil. It grows in coralline limestone on Luzon Island, its natural habitat.
