An Orienpet Lily with huge, 8in flowers, intoxicatingly fragrant and borne on spires up to 2ft across for longer than you thought possible. Winner of the North American Lily Society's popularity poll for four straight years.
Stunningly beautiful Orienpet Lilies are hybrids between Oriental and Trumpet Lilies. We will continue to offer more varieties as they become available from Holland and the West Coast. Orienpets combine the best features of both groups of Lilies—fragrance, large flowers, and sturdy garden performance—but bloom about two weeks earlier than most Orientals. The advantage is an almost continuous sequence of Lily blooms, if you start with Asiatic varieties, then follow with Trumpets, Orienpets, and Orientals.
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. Shipped as bulbs.
