Rio Negro

'Rio Negro' - Oriental Hybrid Lily Bulb

Item# L7502
Sorry, sold out for this spring, available again in 2020.
'Rio Negro' is the finest blue-red (true red) variety we have ever trialed, and as a bonus 'Rio Negro' has a chocolate star in the center of each bloom reminiscent of the old J. S. Yeats variety 'Journey's End'. A heavy bloomer, this yummy-scented lily is good for the border, with intensely colored blooms, dark speckles and sturdy stems, even when planted in part shade. Coupled with 'Silverside', you could not ask for better "eye candy" in your garden.

The main photo was taken during a warm season summer and the flowers are "redder" in color. The insert photograph shows darker color because the weather was much cooler. 3 to 4 Feet. Late July / Early August Flowering. Fragrant.

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

Classification: Oriental Hybrid Lily (USDA Zones 6-9, the colder climates of this range must provide winter mulching.)
