Gardeners' Notes:


On Aug 3, 2014, buckles from Hailey, ID (Zone 4b) wrote:

My Boogie Woogie lilies are 3 years old and have bloomed every year. Mine get about 7 hours of sun per day and moderate water. For whatever reason, these flourished this year. One of the plants is over 68" tall and holds 12 blooms. The other plants are in the 3 to 4 feet range. One stem of beautiful, ivory blooms is all you need to scent an entire room.

Heat and intense sun definitely a factor affecting 'pink blush' edge. Cool nights and cloudy, cool days really bring out the blush.

Not the tallest of Orienpets, this one doesn't seem to get taller than 5.5 or 6 feet. However, its outward-facing flowers dominate half of the plant's vertical stem, making it an extraordinarily floriferous trail-marker of a plant.
The presence of the elusive pinkish edge on the flower is most likely due to heat- cooler weather and perhaps more acidic soil will bring about that edge. But otherwise a broadly shaped flower that demands attention.
