These hardy, easy to grow hybrids derived from crosses between L. longiflorum
(Easter Lily) and the more familiar Asiatics add a wide splash of color between your Asiatic and Trumpet bloom times. Found in nearly as wide a range of color as the Asiatics (no near blacks yet) their petal texture is much heavier for extended bloom time. They multiply well and bulbs left undisturbed for two or three years often reach 10 to 12 inches in circumference or more. They all carry a light, pleasing fragrance.
