Spicy fragrance, 3 to 4 Feet. Mid / Late July flowering.

This deep violet lily, with a mahogany colored overlay, is so intensely shaded that is was tough getting a good photograph in the field to show off the gradual bending of colors. As a floral arrangement, it needed bright reds, light pink and white for contrast because after the orange pollen was removed, its color was too dark on the walnut side table. Stems are sturdy and the petals have a slight pie crust ruffle on the edges. The fragrant flowers are strongly upfacing and tend to stay together as they open, making it easy for placing in vases.

This is not a lily for all day shade because the color will be lost in the landscape; you will want to provide full sun in coastal (maritime) or cool mountain areas, light afternoon shade in warmer climates. Late July Flowering. 3 Feet. Fragrant.

Fantastic in floral arrangements, the small inset photo shows an arrangement by Dianna for the Northwest Flower & Garden Show in 2010 where this lily was first introduced.

Bulb Size - Our standard for bulbs of this lily cultivar ranges from Premium-size (16/18 cm) to Exhibition-size (over 20 cm).

Classification: Oriental Hybrid Lily (USDA Zones 7b-9, lows to +5 F. Winter mulch recommended in the colder climates)
