Flower Description: ‘Saltarello’ was the folk dance of central Italy and a favored dance during Roman carnivals. A fast triple meter with a particular hop on the final upbeat, this ‘Saltarello’ will keep your garden jumping with color.
More intense in color than 'Eudoxia', this new fragrant Oriental-Trumpet hybrid or "Orienpet" lily has superior resistance to hot days and sun fading. More like the old-fashioned Trumpet lily, 'Copper King', but with stronger stems and not being as sensitive to damage by late frosts. 4 to 5 feet. July/August Bloom.

From San Diego: Some comments on this year's bulbs. "Saltarello is incredible! It keeps showing various colors as it goes through its bloom cycle (and I don't mean that it fades!."
From Oakland, California: Saltarello should be sold as an anti-depressant.
Receiving the above email from our customer in Oakland reminded me of a line from ‘La damnation de Faust’ by Hector Berloiz who referred to this “free form oratoria” (contata) rather than opera as his “legende dramatique”. The email reminded me of one line sung by ‘Faust’ while in a state of depression over his position or state in life, “Oh Earth, only for me have you no flowers”? If you are feeling a bit down from time to time, maybe ‘Saltarello will help. This “legende dramatique” lily is sure to brighten your spirits and raise your current mood to a higher level.
