Large, creamy lemon yellow flowers reach up to 12" across. Fragrant. These fragrant varieties are a hybridizer's perfect cross between the exotic Orientals and regal Trumpet Lilies. Orientals are known for their fragrance, spectacular color and flower size. Trumpets are known for their trumpet–shaped flowers, they naturalize well and are easy to grow. The sturdy stems on these lilies can reach a height of 3–4', with large, sweet smelling blooms 3–6" in size in the first year alone. By the second year, they can shoot up to 5–6', and within three years these lilies can reach as high as 6–8', with masses and masses of beautiful blooms to enjoy. The surge in height of these Lilies is owed to their extraordinary ability to produce multiple stems from a single bulb.
