'Rio Negro' - Oriental Hybrid Lily - Save $4 on package of 6 bulbs.
Flower Description: The ‘Rio Negro’ is the largest left tributary of the Amazon and the largest blackwater river in the world. Though the waters of the ‘Rio Negro’ are not exactly black, but more the color of strong tea, they look black from the air. Known to anglers around the world as being the place to fish for Peacock Bass weighing in over 20 lbs, the dark waters of the ‘Rio Negro’ are incomparable and teeming with life.
'Rio Negro' the lily, is one of the nicest black-red varieties we have ever trialed, (there are more in the works) and as a bonus 'Rio Negro' has a chocolate star in the center of each bloom reminiscent of the old J. S. Yeats variety 'Journey's End'. Though the flowers produced by this Oriental hybrid lily bulb are not a true black when viewed up close, from a distance, it is as dark as they come. A heavy bloomer, this yummy-scented lily is good for the border, with bright colored blooms and sturdy stems. The addition of 'Rio Negro' to your garden will fill it with incomparable beauty. 3 to 4 Feet. July Flowering. Fragrant.
