I just love these lilies with their strap leaves. They are very tender and sometimes do not flower and only produce leaves. They are tropical and needs a sunny position with a soil with good drainage. I have seen these growing in Belize on the beach in what looks like pure sand, but I think it prefers rich soil in order to produce the next years flowers. The bulbs can be bought easily, but are expensive. Providing the bulb is not too wet after frost they survive outside and regrow in the spring.
