'Prince Promise' - Easter x Oriental Hybrid Lily
Flower Description: A cross between the Easter Lily (L. longiflorum) and an Oriental hybrid lily, these lightly scented blooms have a white base color that blends to a soft, color-fast pink on the inner portions of the flowers. Because of the Easter Lily background, this clone grows equally well in the warmer areas of the south, as in more northern climates.
Not requiring as much winter chill and blooming early enough to escape the hottest part of the summer, customers in Texas have been very pleased, reporting it does just as well or even better than 'Triumphator' in their gardens. 3 to 4 feet is the average height the first season, but stems can reach 6 feet or more when established. July Flowering. Fragrant.
