'Canaletto' - Oriental Hybrid Lily Bulb
Flower Description: Replacing 'Sorbonne' as Dianna's favorite pink in the field when in bloom, we have found 'Canaletto' to be not only exceptional in both form and color, but also fade resistance even in the warmer areas of the US. These solid candy pink flowers are classified as being flat faced meaning they are wider than the more bowl shaped flowers and they have a slight curl to the petal edges and at time sport a tiny thread of white on their edges.
The fragrance is fantastic and we have found the sturdy stems on this lily to exceed the norm. As color fast as we have found this lily to be in full sun here on the farm, being a pink, if your summer temps regularly hold at about 90 or more in July, even 'Canaletto' should be placed in some light afternoon shade in your garden. 3 to 4 Feet. Late July/Early August Flowering. Fragrant.

Classification: Oriental Hybrid Lily Bulb(USDA Zones 6-9, colder climates w/winter mulch.)
