These blossoms are the color of soft sunshine and perfectly formed. Each stem averages five flowers, with the topmost pointing up and the others outward, to create a dramatic garden presence. An outstanding Orienpet with a pleasant fragrance and good dark foliage.
Orienpets (a hybrid of Oriental and Trumpet Lilies) combine the best features of both groups -- 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.
