More Information

Cardiocrinum Giganteum (Giant Himalayan Lily) is an impressive flower that can reach around 8 feet (3 metres) in height when fully grown. It produces large, white trumpet shaped flowers that bloom in late summer and have a decidedly sweet smell.

These are bulbs, but we supply them as well rooted plants in polythene pots. These Cardiocrinum Giganteum are hardy plants and will reach a height of around 8 feet (3 metres), topped with as many as 20 of the most fragrant white; trumpet flowers. A truly magnificent sight.

Native to the Himalayan mountain range and parts of China, it is also known as the Giant Himalayan lily.

Growing the Giant Himalayan Lily

To grow the Giant Himalayan Lily (Cardiocrinum giganteum) you will need to plant in well drained soil. This should be done in either Spring or Autumn for best results. After planting, water regularly during the first year to help encourage new growth. Additionally, fertilise once every two months using a balanced fertiliser such as 10-10-10 during the growing season. Once it has been established, you can reduce the frequency of watering and fertilising.

It is important to note that Cardiocrinum giganteum will not flower until its third year, so be patient! In colder climates, it’s a good idea to provide a thick layer of mulch each Autumn to insulate the bulbs from frost. With proper planting and care, you should be rewarded with stunningly beautiful flowers in no time at all.

A truly magnificent sight.
