Anastasia is a sweetly scented lily. Bred by crossing the oriental types with trumpet lilies, resulting in Orienpets which are sweetly scented and the flowers will hang pendulous. Anastasia produces flower that are a strong pink which turn to white at the edges. Performs well in containers or borders and for the best results plant in groups of 3 or more. Lilies are an excellent garden plant andcan be left undisturbed for years, only needing to be moved when they become overcrowded. Lilies prefer well drained soil, but if this is a problem just add a handful of grit to the hole when planting. Protect young shoots from slugs and pests and feed during flowering to help them naturalise and come back year after year.
Soil type: All free draining soils, also happy in heavier clays if grit is placed below the growing bulb. Aspect: Semi shade to full sun
Flowering time: August-September
