An Oldie, African Queen is around since 1958. When she was introduced she turned out to be a true revelation in the world of garden lilies. Mr Jaan de Graaf from Oregon America bred Lilium henryi with some other species lilies from the far east and some the seedlings he raised turned around the whole lily spectrum. African Queen is one of those seedlings but also Golden Splendour and Pink Perfection belong to these crosses. These two are also in our assortment available. The next text from these times show how the gardening world spoke of these lilies: This new type of lilies is extraordinary healthy, hardly suffer from diseases, are fully hardy and grow well in any type of soil, Fool proof lilies. In another book you can find the words: Robust, not picky when it comes to soil or climate and an endless range of colours and flower shapes. Till the day of today these words are still accurate.
