‘Alusta’ is a Finnish word meaning “foundation” or “workbench”. Apply named, this lily has indeed been a foundation / workbench for many a breeding project. We offered ‘Alusta’ a number of years ago and then set it on the back burner in favor of what has become one of our best sellers over the years, ‘Conca d’ Or. Though sitting in the wings for years, every season we were drawn back to it as it came into flower. We feel that any lily that keeps coming back year after year and always stronger than the year before, needs to be spread throughout the garden world. This lily is persistent.

Soft golden yellow in color, pleasing fragrance and sturdy stems, ‘Alusta’ tends to have somewhat upfacing flowers, with a slight green tint on the petal reverse. A nice transition color between the stronger oranges and bright yellows. 3 to 4 Feet. July Flowering.
