Speechless Sunday Jun 5th, 2016, A Variety of Asian Lily I have Not Seen Before

By
Real Estate Agent with Retired CA BRE# 01048160

 

The White Stargazer Lily to the right, behind the center white flower is a more common  Asian Lily and found in many floral presentations in the early summer months. The one in the center of the photo smells even more fragrant ( if that is possible) but has so many more petals. It is a variety that showed up in an arrangement I received for a Birthday a few weeks back. I don't recall ever having seen this variety. My favorite flowers are the white stargazer and red or white roses so I wasn't surprised that this arrangement has so many of both. This variety is the Lodewijk Double Oriental Lily. If you ever see them available in your area, you will love the fragrance and their long life.

William-That is gorgeous. White is the symbol of purity and no one I know has a purer heart than you.  What a special gift.

I'm very fond of Stargazer lilies, and have a couple dozen planted in my backyard.  I've not seen any double blossoms like your's however.  It's really quite lovely!  The smell of these lilies has to be close to heaven!

Hi Susan Laxson , Thank you so much. This lily is remarkably fragrant, stronger than what you would expect from the Asian Lily family. I am looking for the bulb source and perhaps I will plant some of my own.

Hi Patricia Kennedy , I expect to go back East again this year and then plan to visit Longwood Gardens and I will try and locate the source of the bulbs as well as maybe growing some of these.

Hi Hannah Williams , Thank you so much. Having studied these a bit more carefully, the petals are pointed where as the rose petal is more oval rectangular.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , I think that is a good way of expressing the scent, " Heavenly" . The visuals are also so wonderful.
