Flower Description: Another first in lily breeding, 'Zeba' is the first lily to be introduced out of the lovely 'Kushi Maya'. 'Kushi Maya' came about by crossing L. nepalense with an Oriental. 'Zeba' is the result of 'Kushi Maya' crossed back to another Oriental. The down side is that the breeder decided to discontinue 'Kushi' while introducing 'Zeba'. All is not lost though as we do have a few bulbs in the field to scale of 'Kushi', and one day she will be back.
'Zeba' is not only in a class by herself in breeding, but is also in a class by herself in the garden. Our first bulbs are coming directly from the breeder for spring delivery, but after that, they will be from our own field production. These large white flowers carry a nearly red-black center with chocolate nectary. Growing to about 4 feet when established, this is a Late July, Early August bloomer. Light Fragrance.
Bulb Size - Our standard for bulbs of this Orienpet Hybrid Lily Bulb cultivar ranges from Premium-size" (16/18 cm) to Exhibition-size" (over 20 cm). Click here for details.
