‘Scorpio’ Oriental Lily Bulb
The brightest red Oriental Lily to ever be bred. This bulb will produce magnificent bright fire engine red flowers with a glorious scent. This deep red lily, is intensely colored so it will “show off” the gradual blending of colors. Stems are sturdy and the petals have a slight pie crust ruffle on the edges. The mid-summer blooming fragrant flowers are strongly up facing and tend to stay together as they open, making it easy for placing in vases. Color will fade fast if grown in all day shade so best placement is in full sun in the am hours and pm shade (say from two or three in the afternoon.)
The most beautiful and fragrant flowers in the world of lilium are to be found among the Oriental lilies, with their happy personalities, huge flowers, intense fragrance, and late blooming rich colors. Your garden will come alive with this rich mixture of bright colored blooms and sweet fragrance. Enormous, fragrant flowers in many vibrant shades including but not limited to yellow, red, pink, crimson, pure white, pink-and-white, and many more! Growing and blooming on strong, straight stems in July and August, the show is breathtaking, the perfume intoxicating.
Oriental lily heights vary from 3ft to 5ft (and sometimes taller), and the flowers may be bowl-shaped or flat-faced, lacey petal edges, sometimes with recurved petals and many other forms. Use vibrant Oriental Lilies to fill spaces in flower borders or make an even more outstanding show and plant a dozen or two in the cutting garden, making the most flamboyant, extravagant bouquet.
