'Hotline' - Oriental Hybrid Lily
Flower Description: And "Hot" it is! The pink picotee trim on 'Hotline' generally darkens with age in cool summer climates, but in locations with hot summer sun, the edges will become paler in color. If your summers are hot in July, give this lily a bit of afternoon shade for best results. These flowers are just a tiny bit smaller than the typical Oriental hybrid. As shown in Dianna's photo taken in her front garden, the flowers turn pink and the edging color darkens as they age, making for something different in every flower. Fragrant. 3 Feet. July Flowering.
