Reviewed 23rd October 2014 by Arthur Parkinson

These were one of the first bulbs I ordered from Sarah Raven. You can't have a bold and colourful summer garden without these huge,exotic like blooms. All are worth the daily grind of taking a moment of inspecting them for lily beetle. First to bloom is Nerone opening the colour of the finest tomato soup then fading to a crimson. Landini is a delight being the summer version of the queen of the night tulip with its unbeatable dark petals and bright orange stamens. Last to bloom is the exotic species Rubrum this is the last lily to the summer party but worth waiting for. We garden in the north and grow all these lilies in pots - I set most of them in the autumn beneath my early tulips by the time the tulips are over the lilies are waking up beneath them so plug what would otherwise be an empty pot. All need staking!
