-Cape York Lilies will grow in most parts of Australia. They are dormant in winter which protects the plant from frost and will pop up in spring. They make an excellent cut flower and can be also used as a groundcover.


Growing Conditions well drained rich soil, dormant in winter can handle cooler conditions.
Flowering Season In spring the flowers pop up before the foliage. Striking!

Be patient in colder areas

By: on 8 January 2017
Melbourne - outer eastern suburbs. My Cape York Lily has been in for 3 or 4 years now, and this year I am finally being rewarded with flowers! I've had a great foliage display every year (and I must say, it grows bigger than I expected in a cold area), but sadly, no flowers. Suddenly, this year it seems to be spreading, and I have fabulous pink spikes coming up - one without leaves, and one inside a leaf so far. I'm thrilled to finally be seeing some colour!
