The Madonna Lily, Lilium candidum, has large, white, trumpet-shaped 5" flowers that have a sweet fragrance. The oldest pictures of this Lily date back 3500 years and found on the Island of Crete. Heirloom bulbs are the best of the best of timeless, classic and elegant varieties that have been bred to relative perfection. These antique varieties have endured the test of time, and are as amazing as they were thousands of years ago.
For generations, it has been a favorite, bursting into bloom each year with a virtual bouquet of 15-20 flowers per plant. Featuring very fragrant, pristine white petals, this lily has been considered a symbol of sweetness and purity since it was first cultivated in medieval times. The Madonna lily is truly a beautiful lily, quite hardy and easily grown. Highly recommended!
