Also referred to as OT or Orienpet Hybrids, these Interspecific crosses between Oriental and Trumpet lilies have produced lily bulbs that easily weather late Midwestern frosts without bud kill, and still carry the sweet fragrance and shape of Oriental lilies. These improved hybrids have all been trialed under garden conditions, so now you can even have solid yellow "Orientals" for late summer, with increased drought-resistance and reliability.

Hybridizers are working on increasing the color range, and as additional varieties become available, they will be introduced in this section. Also included in this group are Orientals, bred from the famous Tetreploid form of 'Black Beauty' crossed with a Tetraploid conversion of 'Rachel Pappo' or 'Journey's End'. These wonderful cultivars tend to the red shades and usually are more expensive, due to their limited distribution, but have proven themselves in garden trials all across the USA.
