White Star Gazer Oriental Lily
Lilium 'White Star Gazer'
Most of us are probably familiar with Stargazer Lilies but I had never seen the pure white ones before. Several years ago we ought some ‘Golden Stargazer’ and they have been doing well ever since. It was a little weird seeing these for sale last week as our Lily season seemed to come a little early this year and didn’t last too long and is long past. The white variety seems to have all the nice habits and characteristics of the typical Stargazers. The heavy fragrance, large flowers, hardiness are all there and the additional benefit of being a little shorter growing (24 inches tall).
Since it is Sunday here is a bonus flower snapshot. This lily was much more traditional looking and it’s red was blazing in the afternoon sun.
