Enjoy the amazingly spicy, summertime aroma of the popular Stargazer Oriental Lily (Lilium oriental 'Stargazer'), a hybrid Lily, which quickly reaches a mature height of 3-4 feet with big blooms that open into stars! The only thing that is more impressive than the big blooms is the incredible scent! One bloom fills a room with scent, so much that your nose will let you know a Stargazer is near before you see it!
Bright, cherry red and pink blossoms are edged in white, with a spattering of pink speckles. This variety was created specifically to bloom flowers facing upward, instead of drooping, hence the name. The lovely blooms appear in mid to late Summer giving you a perfect plant to enjoy and admire when relaxing in the beautiful, warm weather.
Stargazer Oriental Lilies make excellent cut flowers and are attractive to Hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators. Who can blame them though? This flower is simply stunning! Just one will perfume a seating area or dining table for days! Winter hardy in USDA growing zones 3 through 8, the bulbs form bulblets that colonize small areas, or easily get transplanted into new areas to spread the beauty!
You will want to plant this flower near your porch or patio to be able to soak in its sweet fragrance as well as its captivating beauty! These summer-blooming flowers delight your pollinators, cottage borders and perennial beds! At maturity, a single bulb can grow 36-48 inches tall and spread to 6-8 inches wide. They rarely need staking unless you exped a bad storm.
The Stargazer Oriental Lily looks amazing planted along a border, in a Lily patch, or planted in containers. Its strong stems hold the lovely blooms aloft, no matter where it's planted. Fantastic focal points in both the mixed planter in the sun as they are in the vase, you'll want several of these Lilies growing throughout your landscape to put on their summer show!
Oriental Lilies are super-easy to grow and do best in full to partial sunlight, with well-drained loamy or sandy soil. Provide moderate moisture that won't dry out or become soggy with a 3-4 inch layer of mulch around the bulbs. Deadhead the blooms right after they fade and leave several inches of leafy stalks to make food for the bulbs for the rest of the growing season. In late autumn after frost, trim back the dead stems and cover loosely with compost or mulch.
This breathtaking flower will be gone before you know it, so order your very own the Stargazer Oriental Lily today and give your garden the sparkle it's been looking for! Order today from NatureHills.com and our nursery will ship your bulbs at the right time for planting in your growing zone!
