Description: Oriental Lilies are later to bloom than other types, with intoxicatingly fragrant star-shaped flowers that are superb for cutting. They prefer a rich, moist soil on the acidic side, with similar needs to Rhododendrons. This tall selection produces enormous white flowers with contrasting red anthers. It is extremely popular for cutting, particularly for weddings. Stems should be staked before blooming to prevent wind damage. Especially nice in containers. Remove dead stems in the fall. Clumps may be divided after a few years by digging up the bulbs in mid autumn, separating them and replanting to a new location
