‘Tessala’ Orienpet Lily Bulb
Truly a stunning masterpiece! Fire-engine red petals, silk-looking flowers with a yellow throat. The buds on these are also a red color. Just magnificent! Enormous up- to out-facing fragrant flowers completely saturated with deepest raspberry rosy red and yellow throat! Its statuesque stems carry broad, deep green leaves that suit it to perfection.
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!
