The blooms of this astonishing hybrid lily are simply huge, often reaching a foot or more across which is why such lilies are also known as 'Dinner Plate Lilies' ! They are incredibly fragrant too with a sweet citrus scent.
Arising from a cross between oriental lilies and their trumpet lily cousins Big Brother combines the best features of both kinds, the result is a statuesque garden plant that will be admired by all.
Plant it in a sunny border or in a large pot and you'll see strong stems emerging in spring bearing 3 or 4 massive blooms from late June. What's more the plants are fully hardy and will re-appear every summer, each season yielding taller stronger stems that the last, reaching 5 feet or more and bearing more jumbo flowers.
Grow these stunning lilies in your garden and you're sure to be the envy of neighbours and friends this summer.
