'Belladonna' - Orienpet Hybrid Lily Bulb
Flower Description: It is said that Italians lust for the classic red FerrariŠ only ranks below their admiration of the 'Bella Donna'. Meaning 'Beautiful Lady', 'Belladonna' is more intense in color than 'Novatore' and this rich, almost golden-yellow introduction has been a real attention grabber. Far superior to 'Golden Stargazer' which we discarded following garden trials years ago after a wind storm that did not hurt any of our other lilies completely striped them of all petals. 'Belladonna has huge bowl-shaped flowers, great rich color, and soft, wafting fragrance all in one "beautiful lady". 4 Feet. July to August Blooming. Lovely Fragrance.
The photo shown under the caption of 'Additional Images' is of a single mother bulb planted 4 years earlier and her offsets under a 15+ yr. old Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus). Though being extremely crowded now by the Rose of Sharon, 'Belladonna' has dug in her heals to hold her ground and is doing just fine.
