'Helen of Troy' has proven herself to be very color fast even in hot 85 to 90 F direct sun in Johan's field. We would like to say her “face” would launch a thousand gardens into unsurpassed beauty, but in the case of this 'Helen of Troy' will grace your garden with her unsurpassed beauty. As with all pink flowering Orientals, she should be given some light afternoon shade in very hot areas. Growing to about 4 feet, this is a July Blooming lily. Bulbs are coming to us direct from Mr. Mak who reported that in 2022, well established bulbs in his home garden were over 5 feet.
Bulb Size - Our standard for bulbs of this Oriental Hybrid Lily Bulb cultivar ranges from Premium-size (14/16 cm) to Exhibition-size (over 20 cm). Click here for details.
Classification: Oriental Hybrid Lily (USDA Zones 7b-9, lows to +5 F. Winter mulch recommended in the colder climates)
