An exquisite, quite rare subtropical lily from the Philippines, Lilium philippense resembles an Easter lily, but it blooms in the late summer. Long drooping buds atop tall leafy stems open into absolutely beautiful and sweetly fragrant flared white trumpets with green throats up to 8 inches in length. The fragrance is magnificent. You can expect a cluster of up to 6 flowers per stem. Leave the spent flower stalks in the garden for winter interest. It grows up to 6-8 feet tall. Native to the island of Luzon in the Philippines, it is closely related to Lilium formosanum and Lilium longiflorum. It prefers a light, well-drained soil. It is a lily that does well in warm regions. Hardy in zones 8-11.
