Flower Description: The short fat buds of 'Carolina' pop open to reveal pristine white double flowers with just a hint of lemon gold at their centers. As with all light colored double lilies, afternoon shade is recommended in warmer climates to protect the petal edges from being crisped by the sun, or cut the flowers just before opening to use in a vase, leaving as many leaves as possible to build the bulb back up for the next season’s flowers. 3 to 4 Feet. Late July Flowering.
PLEASE NOTE: Price listed is for one (1) package of 3 bulbs. If you wish 6 bulbs, change shopping cart quantity to two (2), for 9 bulbs, change shopping cart quantity to three (3) etc.

“Scratch & Dent” bulbs are those that are showing some spots of penicillin mold from storage (harmless to your bulbs) or have broken dormancy and have started to sprout. Typically we plant these bulbs back into our field in the spring but this year has been so wet, new ground for these bulbs is not plantable with the tractor mounted planter. Bulbs with penicillin mold spots need not be cleaned before planting as the mold dies once it is in the ground.
