Lord Howe 'Wedding Lily'

This rare plant, known to botanists for years, is now available to gardeners. Endemic to Lord Howe Island and known as the Wedding Day Lily, it is a botanical curio with its closest relatives native to South Africa. Impressive pure white flowers last only one perfect day but fortunately there are many blooms over a 4-6 week period in spring and early summer. Broad, upright leaves remain green and lush-looking to provide structure throughout the year.

How to grow

Full sun or part shade, in a free-draining soil fertile in organic matter. Drought-tolerant once established but will benefit from supplementary watering during extended dry periods. Use low-phosphorus fertilisers if required. Prune off spent flowers and damaged foliage as required.
