A Royal New Look for Oriental Lilies!
Fragrance, fragrance, fragrance!
Purple Sensation is nothing short of a color breakthrough for the beautiful Oriental Lily family! Most Orientals are some shade of pink and white, with some redder than others, but this is a positively plummy shade of purple, and so beautiful!
The flowers are enormous -- 7 to 8 inches wide -- and arise in big, dangling clusters atop strong 4-foot stems. Every bit as fragrant as their common pink and white cousins, they are a magnificent spectacle in the midsummer garden, and are splendid for the vase. Pick all you want -- a single bloom scents an entire room for a week or more!
Combine Purple Sensation with other Orientals such as Casa Blanca and Little John, or place it behind other midsummer-blooming perennials like Aster and Shasta Daisy.
Purple Sensation is so easy and rewarding to grow, too. It only improves with age, the blooms getting larger and more beautiful with each passing year. Tolerant of heat, humidity, and cold, it asks only water during dry spells, plenty of sunshine, and a bit of shade or mulch on its roots, to keep them evenly moist. Just about the easiest plant you can grow in the summer garden!
Space these bulbs 10 to 12 inches apart. They will bloom the first year and for many, many years thereafter. Zones 4-8.
We are temporarily out of stock on these bulbs and will have them available again early Fall. Please keep in mind if you order now that the bulbs will be shipped then. thank you!
