Classification: Trumpet/Aurelian Hybrid Lily Bulb(USDA Zones 5-10, the colder climates of this range require winter mulching)Stock # 6230 - 'Geoduck' - Trumpet Lily Bulb
The Geoduck (pronounced Gooey duck) is probably the most famous resident of the Hood Canal. Visitors to Washington are often led to believe it to be the "official" Washington State Bird. In actuality, it is the world's largest burrowing clam, with reported specimens weighing up to 15 pounds and with a lifespan of 150 years.
Though our 'Geoduck' will not weigh in at 15 pounds, and does not yet having a 100-year track record, we have marveled at its grace, beauty, and fragrance for many years. Golden nectary furrows and deeper pink ruffled petal edges accent a soft pastel- pink base color of this garden gem.
This breeding line, started by the late Don Egger, has provided by far the most beautiful trumpets every developed; 'Lord Samuel Hood', 'Lilliwaup', 'Chief Chetzemoka', 'Duckabush' and now 'Geoduck' will remain a lasting tribute to his work. 5 Feet. July.Bulb Size
