A Summer Showstopper!
Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum! You’ll think you acquired some of Jack’s magic beans. This giant scrambles skyward and produces 8-10” red blossoms edged in gold or cream with strongly recurved petals. Fragrant flowers dangle from branching stems like an exotic chandelier. Each stem can produce up to 20 flowers. Long chartreuse stamens are tipped with cinnamon-brown anthers. So dramatic and their fragrance will float on a summer breeze. Lily Scheherazade, a Hybrid Lily, is a cross between Oriental and Trumpet Lilies and eventually can reach heights of 4-5’. Its lush bright-green linear foliage is a magnificent backdrop for other perennials in your sun-filled garden. Naturalizes well! Make sure to position this at the back of your border. It will successively grow taller each year.

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.
