Double flowered form of Lilium lancifolium.

The plant can grow to 4-5ft tall and can carry up to 6 flowers per stem. It doesn't produce seed but will produce bulbils and can also be propagated by bulb scales.

It is considered slightly less likely to harbour the virus some other L. lancifolium do although the double flower may well be caused by a virus itself. It has been known and grown in gardens since at least the 1700s, it may even date back further.

Loves a moist but well drained spot in sun or light shade.
