Description

Not only will Chlidanthus fragrans (commonly known as Perfumed Fairy Lily) fill the air with its powerful, sweet scent during summer, but this spritely and unusual beauty introduces sunny golden highlights to your pots and borders with its enchanting yellow blooms too. Also known as the Delicate Lily, this petite and pretty plant is a real summer charmer, unfurling with delicate sprays of upright lily-like blooms which provide a luxurious and spell-binding treat for the senses!  

This rare and exotic Peruvian native plant is a lovely little taste of the tropics to enjoy in your own garden, and just perfect for showing off in a sunny spot during summer. Chlidanthus fragrans is particularly good when grown as a patio centrepiece where its unusual blooms and heady fragrance can really wow you and your guests!
