Flower Description: This B & D Lilies Exclusive 2009 Introduction was the most "fluffy" of last years introductions and is only surpassed in fluffiness by 'Lodewijk'. ‘Lilytopia’ will inspire ooh's and aah's by your garden visitors and thus should be planted where the delicate shades of pink, spicy-sweet fragrance and multitude of extra petals can be enjoyed up close. As with all pastel pink Orientals, we advise that in hotter climates, bulbs should be planted in afternoon shade or all-day bright shade to enhance and prolong the pink hues. July Flowering, 3 to 4 Feet.
NOTE: Photo inset was taken in a cool "breeding" greenhouse on 23 July of 2009 showing an even more delicate pink coloration. This house maintains a constant daytime temperature in the mid to upper 70's and is covered with a 50% shade cloth. This softer pink color is closer to what we are seeing in our July bloom in the field as well where temperatures are running about 8 degrees above what they have been the last two seasons, or closer to our normal summer highs. What does this all mean? In warmer areas, 'Double Vision' is going to be a very soft pastel pink. During cool periods, the pink coloration will intensify.
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.
