Very light scent. 3 to 4 Feet. June flowering.


'Foxley', a masterpiece of form, beauty, and color breaks the mold for spotted orange lilies. A lovely golden orange that blends to a deeper orange in the center, these flower are graced by a multitude of tiny purplish spots, nearly to the petal edges. Not as densely spotted as the Easter x Asiatic 'Longwood', the size and number of spots is perfect for this lily. 3 to 4 feet but expect up to 5 feet when well settled. Light Fragrance. June flowering.

BREEDING NOTE: The result of years of work, the new Trumpet x Asiatics are “the next step” and they will, it is felt during the next decade replace Asiatic and Easter x Asiatic (LA's) not only in the florist trade, but in the garden trade as well.

The big advancement over their predecessors is that unlike the Easter x Asiatics, they do not have the white base color that the Easters pass along in many of their offspring. This means that as the flower ages, it will not pale as the white base color begins to show through with many selections. With their trumpet “mothers”, the base colors are solid and rich which comes through in the resulting flowers. This new line is a product of what is known as embryo rescue – the seed embryo is removed from the shell and grown on in an agar mix as the seeds do not have the required endosperm (food) to nourish growth.

The first of this new series introduced was 'Night Rider' selected for its rich red-black color. These new selections, all coming to us directly from the breeder this spring, are sure to please. Colors are rich, rich, rich in thanks to the deeply pigmented trait of their seed parents. Growing from 3 to 4 feet, we expect with care, these garden marvels will reach closer to 5 feet as do their trumpet mothers. All are mid to late June flowering and have a very light scent.
