ORIENPET LILY "Scheherazade"


Another Orienpet lily that came into bloom here at Beech Street Gardens a couple of days ago. This was the first Orienpet lily created by The Lily Garden in Vancouver, Washington that can be found all over the world. I purchased the bulb from an event Garden Fever had sponsored about three years ago. This year the flower stock is 8 1/2' to 9' tall with at least 15+ blooms on it. I noticed yesterday there are five baby stocks that have come up around the mother plant. All of them are about 1 1/2' tall and have a single huge flower bud. More lilies.......... These fragrant flowers are dramatically curved at 6", a deep red edged in gold, shading into white with the throat showing the same color pattern. It is planted in full mid-morning sun and transfers into partial afternoon shade.

USDA hardiness zone 4 to zone 10
