Delightfully Fragrant
Introduced to commemorate the London Olympics in 2012. Blushed-pink elongated buds open to outward-facing flowers. Large pink flowers with flames of red on each petal don throats with glowing embers of yellow. Delightfully fragrant. This Hybrid Lily is a cross between Oriental and Trumpet Lilies. Naturalizes well! Make sure to position this in the back of your border. Its lush bright-green linear foliage is a magnificent backdrop for other perennials in your sun-filled garden. It will successively grow taller each year. Lily Olympic Torch will grow 3-4 the first year, 5-6 the second year and often within three years, it can reach heights up to 8. Much like the practice derived from ancient Greece, we hope our Lily Olympic Torch will welcome all to your garden and relay the same message of peace and friendship.

Lily General Information

Lilies Like a Tree are fragrant giant Lilies that are a cross between Oriental and Trumpet Lilies. Flowers are held on sturdy stems. Perfect for the back of the border, they will steadily increase in height and each year plants will produce more flowers.

Lily Plant Care

Lilies like direct sunlight and well-drained soil. Plant 10-12" apart and 6" deep. Do not remove or cutback stalks until complete dieback has occurred in the fall, it could weaken the bulb.
