Spectacular Speckled Blooms

'Salmon Star' boasts amazing, eye-catching patterns on its big, creamy blooms.
This Asiatic Lily is so versatile, it is hard to think of where you can't use it! 'Salmon Star' is hardy enough for the border, pretty enough for the bed, small enough for the container, and it even makes an excellent cut flower!

The upward-facing, salmon-colored blooms open in midsummer, with up to 12 flowers coming from every bulb. 'Salmon Star' perfectly mimics the natural pattern of a salmon: pale, creamy pink undertones are speckled with magenta spots. But the color doesn't stop there; this Lily is more beautiful than some brutish fish! 'Salmon Star' also has midribs streaked in a subtle orange and a triangle of lemon-lime peeking out of its throat. These green and orange tones are mirrored in the filaments and anthers. The overall effect is enchanting, inviting your eye in to study all the intricacies of its beauty.

Like other Lilies, this showy flower is a boon in any garden. 'Salmon Star' is easy to grow, requiring very little maintenance to reach its full height of 28 to 36 inches tall. Like many lilies, it appreciates cool soil. Mulch it in heavily or, better yet, plant a groundcover at its feet to hide those legs. Daylilies, Coreopsis, creeping Phlox, and so many more make a lovely cover-up. When 'Salmon Star' is in bloom, it becomes even more colorful and interesting by attracting butterflies!

Give 'Salmon Star' the cool (and slightly basic) soil that it likes, and watch it flourish year after year. It will come back each season a little taller and better branched, its blooms increasing in size and substance. Cut all you like for the vase -- 'Salmon Star' just keeps pushing out petals! Truly a remarkable plant, it asks only sunshine, water, and well-drained soil to bloom for many years. Zones 3-9. Pack of 3.
