Lily Bulb Description

Flower Description (Friemann) These cantaloupe orange blooms have brownish-red penciling radiating out from the nectary papillae and lightly reflexed petal tips that lighten to ivory as the blooms age. One of the first clones released by LeVern, it is a cross involving the old clone of 'Thunderbolt' from Jan de Graaff and a Tetraploid Oriental from Dr. Pappo, called 'Rachel Pappo'. Flower color and form resemble Lilium henryi, but the blooms are much larger, up to 6 inches across. Thick, heavily textured flowers, apple green nectary stars and cinnamon-colored, raised papillae make this a stunning addition to your landscape. Drought and heat-resistant. Blooms are plentiful, their color gradually fades as the flowers age, with a good showing in warm weather. A very long-lived clone, bulbs tend to get larger, with many more flowers each year, good for permanent plantings, near the back of a border. 4 - 6 Feet. July/August.
