Cape York Lily29 November 2018Received my lily in excellent condition and it already has a new growth after only two weeks in the ground. Very happy with my purchase
Be patient in colder areasBy: Megan on 8 January 2017Melbourne - 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!
