Gardeners' Notes:

I absolutely love this lily. Mine is planted in a container with several other different things, but proudly 'holds its own'. It's about 3 feet tall. While slightly fragrant during the day, it's intensely fragrant at night-- intoxicating!!!! I planted it in spring of 2007 (it was a very small baby bulb that someone had given me) and this is its first bloom-- summer 2008; and the single stalk has 3 gorgeous blooms. I'm so glad I have this!

This orienpet lily is out-to-up facing with 8" flowers that last for up to 2 weeks when cut. Pleasant fragrance without being overpowering. Bright yellow with a crimsom/orange center. The single bulb I planted last fall sent up 2 stalks, one with 3 flowers and one with 2.
