‘Nabageena’ is an excellent pendant Asiatic Lilium Hybrid in a good pink with contrasting mustard-cream throat and frosted pink nectaries.
Expect up to 15, slightly recurved flowers on well-formed, sturdy stems to 1 metre.
‘Nabageena’ is a Tasmanian Aboriginal word for “sun” & was also applied to a township in the Circular Head region of north western Tasmania.
Lilies of the Tas Townships Group are Pendant Asiatic Lilium Hybrids bred here and named for places with Tasmanian Aboriginal names in Tasmania’s West & North West regions.
They are easily grown, multiply naturally, and have excellent, pyramidal inflorescences. They fit readily into smaller gardens, and can add great beauty to quiet corners of any garden.
Pendant (down-facing) lilies offer an advantage over the more common, up-facing lilies, in that they are not so readily damaged by inclement weather, remaining attractive and adding interest over longer periods in the garden.
