Description of Cardiocrinum Giganteum Popular Summer Flowers

Cardiocrinum Giganteum, the giant Himalayan lily, is the largest species of any of the lily plants, growing up to 3.5 metres high. It is found in the Himalayas, China and Myanmar. Cardiocrinum are large bulbous perennials with trumpet-shaped flowers that look like lilies. Provides a gorgeous vanilla scent. 


  • Cardiocrinum giganteum like most soil types.
  • They prefer the soil to be moist but well drained. 
  • Soil can be Acid, Alkaline or Neutral preferably humus-rich.
  • Woodland settings are ideal.
  • These lilies like a shady position where the direct sunlight will not burn their leaves.
  • We would also advise planting these bulbs around larger trees and shrubs to protect them from strong winds. 
  • Group bulbs towards the back of flower beds due to their height. 
  • Avoid water logging and may need some protection from frosts in colder climates.
  • No pruning required. 
  • Once the bulbs have become established and begin to enlarge, cardiocrinums resent being moved.
