Lily Bulb Description

(Click on an image to learn more about each cultivar in this collection or to order a variety individually and not as a collection at this special price.)

A very special selection of our 'Hood Canal' series trumpets highlights what we believe to be the four most uniquely colored selections in the series. Included is 'Green Tea', the most beautiful greenish 'Chinese Trumpet' type to be introduced in many years. All hybrids in this collection were selected from lilies originally bred by the late Don Egger and his assistant, Theresa Leap. Don was literally decades ahead of any work being done with trumpets worldwide and even breeders in Holland have seen the vast improvement in Trumpet lines, with their top hybridizers using advancements Don achieved in furthering work on Oriental-Trumpet hybrids.

Lily connoisseurs from around the world have asked for entire collections of Trumpets and our 'The Brass Band' collection brings you the pick of the litter. 'Geoduck' (pronounced gooey duck) is the final addition to the 'Hood Canal' series and may possibly overtake 'Lilliwaup' as our overall favorite. It's grace and beauty in garden settings is unequaled. No collection of lilies will ever be complete without these crown jewels and this group consists of one bulb each of five different clonal sections. Should a cultivar sell out; no substitutions will be made, as there is nothing comparable to offer in their place.

Bulb Size - Our standard for bulbs of this lily cultivar ranges from Premium-size» (16/18 cm) to Exhibition-size» (over 20 cm). Click here for details.
