Double or Rose Oriental Lilies:
This fairly new series features double flowering cultivars, which are pollen free and have a light, pleasant fragrance. That’s right, no more pollen on clothing after handling the flowers, and the strong overbearing aroma of most Orientals has been reduced to a lighter, delightful scent. Although referred to as double Orientals, the Rose lilies are bred to have at least 18 flower petals, which is 12 more petals than cultivars with single flowers; this truly distinguishes the Rose lily series from other double Orientals on the market. In the landscape they are best grown in locations with morning full sun and afternoon shade in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 10. Double or Rose lilies grow 24 to 30 inches tall. They are very suitable for growing in 2-gallon containers or larger, in raised beds, and in the landscape or garden. Oriental lilies perform best when they are grown in moist, well-drained growing mixes. An excellent cut flower for indoors.
