Huge, Fragrant Flowers on Itty-Bitty Plants!
Blooms reach 6 to 7 inches across and are accented with white edging!
An exceptional dwarf Oriental Lily, discovered in the Netherlands, with giant, ultra-fragrant blooms! Perfect for containers or the garden, this midsummer bloomer is a must-have for cut-flower lovers and scent hounds!
Outstanding for the rich strawberry-red coloring of its large, 6- to 7-inch flowers, edged distinctively in white, Strawberry Shortcake is also a very heavy bloomer. And the flowers have good staying power, thanks to their thick, waxy petals, which both preserve the fragrance and keep the weather from collapsing the blooms.
Of Oriental Hybrid origin, Strawberry Shortcake is ideal for the border, along a pathway, and containers. The stems reach 2 feet long and the plant just a foot wide, for an incredible color show in a neat, compact package! And if you like dwarf Lilies, take a look at our economical collection of some of the very best for your garden!
I adore Lilies and grow many dozen varieties in my own garden, and while I love the magnificent tall varieties, I have to say that for sheer flower power, beauty, and scent, Strawberry Shortcake is one of the all-time best. I give it my highest recommendation! Zones 4-9.
