Orienpets are an exciting new group of Lilies that are a cross of fragrant Trumpet Lilies and late-summer Oriental Lilies. These hybrids combine the best of both parents and fill the gap in bloom time between the two.
Lilies are one of the truly great garden plants. Their beauty, diversity, extended season of bloom, exquisite fragrance, graceful stature, and reliable disposition reflect the fruits of hundreds of years of selective breeding. Your garden should not be without them, whether you manage acres of mixed borders or a few pots on a city balcony. Lilies prefer cool soil, which argues for shade at their feet from low-growing companions such as Ferns, Geraniums, or Hellebores.
