An Oriental lily with garden persistence, heat tolerance and
color of Trumpet and Aurelian hybrids

This is one of the most wonderful lilies I have planted at Beech Street Gardens. I purchased a single bulb from The Lily Garden three years ago located in Vancouver, Washington and now have three 6' stocks of fabulous flowers. I planted it next to the patio where the evening air is heavy with fragrance that is divine. The color is outstanding, huge white flowers that are about 7" across with deep, intensely crimson pink throats and secondary buds on the stems that extend the blooming time. Click on the link above and take a look at the wonderful selection of lilies this Pacific Northwest grower offers.

USDA hardiness zone 5 to zone 9

  1. I wonder if you can tell me if this is a lily... or what kind of lily it is. Its in my front garden and was there when I moved in. Didn't bloom last year but that may have been because we had such a brutally hot spring and summer.
