As above, my wife purchased these lilies in woodies DIY garden centre to-day. Has anybody on here grown these lilies? Are they easy to maintain? These grow to 80cm in height in year 1 and to 180cm in height in the year 2. Do they take up much space with width? How many years do these last?

This might be a silly question but ,Woodies employ qualified Horticulturists why didnt you ask them for advice, you dont say what they are. There are 110 different species in the lily family and some plants also have lilly in their common name like arum and calla. more info neded.

Name as above in the title "Lavon" tree lily. I was looking for other peoples opinions. I could go back at a later date to Woodies for more info.

How are you getting on with these max? I was intrigued by these also
at Woodies DIY today. Did you get any more info on them? 6ft high after two years
is very high for a lily, although I have the perfect place for them against a south
facing wall.

Have you started growing them yet?
