A much larger plant than Arthropodium strictum, its flowers hang their heads but they have nothing to be ashamed of. Lilac petals are enhanced by the purple and white anthers in the middle of the flower. In warm weather, the smell of its flowers is reminiscent of vanilla.

Like many lilies, each flower often lasts only a few days but as there can be 50 or more flowers on a stem they can be colourful for weeks. Looks best in clumps of 3 or more plants.



This plant usually dies down over Summer and reappears when the Autumn rains start. If you keep them moist they may keep flowering through Summer. If you let them die down you may want to tag the spot so you don't forget they are there.
