'Catina' - Orienpet Hybrid Lily Bulb
Flower Description: The name ‘Catina’ is a variant of Katherine from the Greek meaning “pure” and “pure” this lily is. If you were to walk into God’s garden, ‘Catina’ would be there with angels hovering above. This is THE cleanest yellow Orienpet we have ever grown. Best described as a diminutive ‘Conca d’ Or, the color is very similar but the flowers are smaller in size and the stems shorter making this the ideal candidate for the central areas of your flower beds. Another contrast is that 'Conca' has a more buttery yellow center.
Reaching only 3 to 4 feet here in our garden, these clearest of yellow backed with the whitest of white, are heavenly. A July bloomer, the fragrance of ‘Catina’ lingers throughout her planting area.
Very Limited Supply for Spring 2011.
