Dizzy Oriental Lily
Giant 10-inch blooms, suffused with color and scent!
Dizzy sets up to 7 blooms the first year from every bulb, and like most garden lilies, increases in height, width, and bud count with each passing year. These are magnificent flowers, opening from long, elegant buds in mid and late summer and remaining fresh for several weeks. The base color is white to shell-pink, overlaid with darker pink blushes near the wide central stripe of brilliant rosy-red. Dark red freckles complete the color pattern.
And each petal is long, slender, and widely spaced, with deeply ruffled edges for an effect of greater depth. Dizzy holds its blooms open wide, for maximum showiness. Some of the petals recurve gently. You'll adore this lily!
Dizzy is very easy to grow, too. Just set the bulb into enriched garden soil and give it support as it grows. The first year it may achieve just 2½ to 3½ feet, but will still set 5 to 7 buds. Next year it will be a bit taller, the blooms may be a bit larger, and so on. You just can't go wrong! Space plants 12 inches apart, and if growing for cut-flowers, pick the blooms early in the day, just as they are opening. Foolproof color and scent, indoors and out! Zones 4-9. Pack of 3 bulbs.
