'Friso' Ortienpet Lily Bulb
Showy tricolor flowers create a kaleidoscopic effect in the garden, opening flat to display deep raspberry and white petals that showcase a green-gold center.
Prized both for its distinctive beauty and sweet fruity aroma, this Orienpet lily combines the best traits of its parents – the elegant beauty and fragrance of the Oriental lily with the brilliant color and hardiness of the Trumpet lily. It’s a standout in the mid to late summer garden, blooming on sturdy stems 4-6’ tall. Perfect for the back border for its height, you might consider planting along a walkway to fully enjoy its remarkable beauty and delightful perfume. We ship premium, top size bulbs, ready to surprise you next summer with a dynamic garden display.
Orienpet lilies are cross bred between Oriental and Trumpet lilies making them extremely fragrant and much taller than any other lilies. They produce huge blooms (from 4 inches to 8 inches across) and large-sturdy stems to support the massive blooms. Because they can grow to heights of over 6 feet from their third year on, staking is recommended so they will not fall or blow over. In most cases, they can withstand hot or afternoon sun and will adapt to most soils very well. However, they are best grown in morning sun and afternoon shade. They may take a little extra care but are well worth the effort!
