‘Damasco’ Orienpet Lily Bulb
Brand new & exclusive…only found at liliyflowerstore.com! One of our most popular lilies at our annual lily festival. Damasco is an old Greek name for a baby boy. Pure white fragrant flower petals with dark raspberry red stripes and speckles coming from the eye to about half of each petal. This wonderful new Orienpet lily is a must have for any garden and holds it’s petal very nicely in bouquets.
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!
