Graceful blossoms of creamy yellow with a prominent lemon-yellow center distinguish this fine Orienpet. The flowers are gloriously fragrant, adding a rich perfume to the peak of bloom in the garden.
These stunningly beautiful Lilies are hybrids between Oriental and Trumpet Lilies, and 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.
Plant Lilies in well-drained soil where they will receive six to eight hours of sun a day. When cutting the flowers for bouquets, remove no more than 1/3 of the stem. This provides sufficient leaves on the remaining stem to renew the bulb for the coming year.
