The regale lily is an incredibly popular plant to grow and an established plant can have as many as fifteen large trumpet shaped flowers. The petals have the distinctive trumpet shape with white petals flushed with yellow centres with the backs of the petals having a dusky pinkish-brown tinge. The flowers are very sweetly scented which makes them an ideal plant to grow in a sheltered spot on or near a patio where the fragrance can be appreciated to the full. They are excellent as a cut flower. Asiatic, Oriental and Trumpet lilies are often grown for their flamboyant colours and fragrant blooms. The lily bulbs can be planted in spring and will be in flower during high summer bringing elegance, colour, form and height to borders, patio pots and containers. The Oriental and Trumpet lilium varieties have the added bonus of an intense and heady fragrance. They attract bees, pollinating insects, butterflies and moths. Trumpet lilies are native to the western part of Sichuan Province in South West china and the magnificent regal lily is the best known. Its trumpet-shaped flowers are easily recognised and they have a wonderful heady fragrance.
