The Perfumed Garden

The most flamboyant personalities in the world of lilies are to be found among the Oriental hybrids, with their huge flowers, intense fragrance, and rich colors. If your garden seems dull in late summer, jazz it up with this enticing mixture of late bloomers. Enormous flowers in vibrant shades of pink, crimson, pure white, pink-and-white, and gold-and-white appear on straight stems in July and August. The show is breathtaking, the perfume intoxicating -- especially as the sun dips below the horizon.
