Beautiful and sultry Mascara Lily (Lilium auratum 'Mascara') sets the late spring mood with deep-hued blooms!

Depending on the lighting and their age, the flowers can appear burgundy, maroon, red merlot, or purplish-plum! Each with a gradually opening spray of satiny petals, starting from the bottom to the top for a long-lasting display! Like pointed stars, these broad trumpets are perfect landing pads for pollinators!

Fragrant as any Asiatic Lily can be, Mascara's huge flowers are held high on sturdy stems, fringed by rows of strappy green foliage! Slowly enlarging the clump, year after year, these bulbs multiply tamely without overpopulating your garden beds!
