Welcome to the Lilium and Bulb Society of South Australia Inc.

The Society normally meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month (except July) at 7.30pm in The Village Well Community Centre at 54 Strathalbyn Road, Aldgate, 5154.

From City:-
Take the Stirling freeway exit and continue through Stirling to Aldgate. Go straight through the roundabout, past the CFS Station on the left and The Village Well is on the right as you go up the hill. (See Google map at the bottom of this page)

We have a number of experts amongst our members who are more than willing to pass on advice for gardeners who are trying to grow a range of bulb species. These include not only Liliums, but many rare species not normally grown in Australia.

Haemanthus coccineus

As can be seen in the images below, it's Autumn at last!

Tired of the Summer heat, and intertminable watering that accompanies it - even though we all probably make use of copious amounts of mulch to reduce evaporation? The images below feature species that keep hidden until the worst of the heat has passed. The orange/red Haemanthus to the left are growing under deciduous Manchurian pears. The Rhodopheala bifida directly below has been growing in an open unshaded area, and the Scadoxus katheranii below that has been in shade most of the time.
