What a stunning addition to our range, lily Royal Kiss is an Asiatic lily with flowers that are almost black and truly stunning. Asiatic lilies are available in a vast array of colours and this one is a great example of that range. An easy lily to grow and will naturalise well in all garden conditions as long as the soils do not become waterlogged in the winter. In wetter soils cultivate in some grit and or humus to help provide better drainage. Remember to protect the young shoots from slug and pest damage. Like all bulbs they will need to be fed with a high phosphate and potash (bone meal) during the flower and leaf stage to ensure they flower in the following years.
Flowering height: 36″ (90cms)
Soil type: Free draining soils that are humus rich
Aspect: Semi shade to full sun
