'Lady's Touch' - J. Mak Orienpet

Item# l9032
Sorry, Not Availablenew
Another selection of new and very limited production lilies from Master Breeder, Johan Mak of Oregon, we have always considered Johan to be not only the top breeder in the USA, but also in the world. In 2017, Johan was honored with the E. H. Wilson Award, which is the highest honor bestowed by the North American Lily Society.

'Lady's Touch', from the fields of Johan Mak was, Johan admitted, actually bred by his wife Ria. One of the selections from the 936 Interdivisional crosses made during the 2002 and 2003 seasons, we feel that 'Lady's Touch' is one of the finest of garden lilies. When you look at the tens of thousands of seeds produced from nearly 1000 crosses, you have got to be a great lily to make the final cut of 24 or so selections. Exact parentage is unknown as during a hard freeze in the field, many tags were lifted out by the heaving ground and were lost.

Johan reports that 'Lady's Touch' is an exceptional grower in that it has produced flowers from 2nd year scales. Most often it takes 3 years from scale to flower. These spotless soft to medium yellow flowers have a wonderful, light fragrance. Johan said that due to the lack of a strong fragrance he is sure there is little to no trumpet in this selection. Petal reverse carries a light darker band that enhances the pure beauty of these somewhat shade tolerant bulbs. There are about a dozen bulbs available for fall delivery. 3 to 4+ Feet. Mid July Flowering. Light Fragrance.
