Hardy Lily, Oriental ‘Stargazer’

A favorite Oriental lily for decades, ‘Stargazer’ is exotic-looking with deep pink flowers that are edged in white and have elegantly recurved petals. Butterflies and hummingbirds LOVE them! Stargazers make a beautiful background for your flower borders and are unsurpassed for cutting. It is very fragrant with huge (5-6″) flowers and produces 4-5 flowers per 3′ stem.

Florists love ‘Stargazer’ for bright summer bouquets and bridal centerpieces. Good growth and bloom. Oriental lilies are one of the most popular types of lilies for gardens. Oriental lilies are among the easiest to grow. They’re very hardy, need no staking, and are not particularly fussy about soil, as long as it drains well. Oriental lilies have become increasingly popular, due to their large, exotic (often frilly) blooms and heavy, sweet perfume.

Ideal for planting in the perennial garden, in containers or for cut flowers. These lilies are simply stunning in mass and are a great accent plant individually. They are of sturdy habit and do not require any support. Ideal for very exposed gardens.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Easy to Grow: 1. Dig a hole 6" deep. 2. Place bulb in hole, pointed side up. 3. Cover with soil and water thoroughly.

Planting Instructions: Plant in late spring 6" deep in any well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Supply moisture and ample organic material through the growing season and mulch to keep roots cool & moist. As soon as the bloom has faded, remove it so seeds do not form. Allow stems to die back naturally in the fall. Divide every 3-4 years. Hardy Lily is one of the few summer flowering bulbs that may be left in the ground over the winter and still continue to bloom year after year each July. Excellent cut flowers but do not remove too much stem and foliage with the blossom as these are needed to build for the next year's growth.

When to Plant Outdoors: Plant in spring, after the ground warms to about 50ยบ F.
