Kushi Maya Orienpet Lily Bulb
Meaning ‘happy love’; simply a breeding masterpiece between L. nepalense and a white Oriental hybrid. Cream and green petals with a strong, maroon red heart, this new beauty will reach four feet in about four to five years but will retain a height of two to three feet until then.
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!
