Lilys for dappled shade

This question was asked by
Simon Burnett


I enjoyed watching Monty Don planting your Gizmo Longiflorum on GW last week. I was particularly interested when he mentioned they could be planted in partial shade.

I just wondered if you could recommend any other lily’s which perform well in a border which is in dappled shade for three quarters of the day, and which will ideally flower in mid late summer.

Thanks for your help,


Good evening

All lilies will flower in partial shade, if they are in heavy shade they will tend to go searching for the light so can grow at an angle. so as long as they are getting some good natural light you will be fine.

kind regards
