This 'American Series' Orienpet lily is a cross between a Trumpet lily and an Oriental lily resulting in extraordinary flower size and substance. A common characteristic of the American Series lilies is that rather than producing many daughter bulbs, these lilies put all their energy into developing large mother bulbs resulting in their large impressive stature. The bulbs are slow to split apart. Unlike most dutch bred lilies that are selected for their cut flower or out-of-season forcing ability, these are bred in field conditions with unpredictable weather conditions and have turned out excellent.
Cut back stems by 1/3.
Division VIII lilies. Cross of Trumpet lilies and Oriental lilies.

breath taking!Review by Holly Butryn - Warren, PA Posted on 2012-07-24 10:06:17
I planted these 3 years ago and they are just breath taking. I have one that is over 7 feet tall. I am ordering more because people just stop and look at them.
Just waitReview by Marcia - Fairfax, VA Posted on 2012-07-11 11:05:37
I planted two years ago and the first year only 3 bulbs came up and I thought that I had just wasted my money. This year all the bulbs came up. They grew up to 5 ft tall and each one had the most wounderful flowers. If this is your first year just wait. I'm looking forward to next year.
