Flower Description: Bred by the late Julius Wadekamper whom we considered to be a close and dear friend, ‘Hiawatha’ has always been near and dear to our hearts. Though Julius did not live "on the shores of Gitche Gumee" (Lake Superior), 'Hiawatha' certainly stands as one of the most superior lilies to come out of his home town of Faribault, MN.
Going back to the early 70’s, and introduced in 1975, this lily as the garden staying power we all look for. These brick red flowers are slightly downfacing and have a nicely distributed spotted pattern. Reaching about 4 feet when settled in, it is a great lily for mid garden to the back of the border. 3 to 4 Feet. Early June.
