'Suncrest' - Fragrant Asiatic Hybrid Lily Bulb
Flower Description: These medium-sized blooms are unusual in that when the buds first open, the color is soft butter yellow (see inset), but after a day or so the ivory base color begins to show on the older flowers, sometimes giving the look of two different flowers on one stem. All through the "color shift", the flowers are covered in a multitude of wine-colored "spreckles". A truly unique Longiflorium-Asiatic Lily hybrid for your garden. 3 Feet or more. June Flowering. Light Fragrance.
