Vallota Growing Guide

Vallota Lilies are stunning plants - super easy to grow, they will perform year after year. 

Vallota's are a wonderful South Afircan bulb that will naturalise nicely here in NZ if left in the ground. The cheery scarlet blooms are an attractive feature in the summer and autumn months. 

Vallota leaves are upright and strappy, growing 20-45cm long - they add a nice contrast to the bright red.

Plant your Vallota Bulbs in a permanent position as they tend to sulk if they are moved. 

Vallota bulbs do well in pots but can also be planted outside in a nice sunny spot, ensuring a rich free draining soil.

  • Plant with the neck of the bulb just above the soil ,10 -12cm apart.
  • These bulbs thrive when they are crowded, so once planted leave them undesturbed for 3-4 years.
  • Water well during growth but sparingly once the foliage starts to yellow.


Fertilise with a general purpose fertiliser or bulb food to ensure beautiful flowers year after year.

You will be amazed at how easy Vallota bulbs are to grow! Enjoy.
