Roselily Carolina® Oriental Lily Bulb

Item #36638


Fragrant, long-lasting, and so fully double

Are you growing roselilies yet? If not, we must urge you to give Roselily Carolina® Lily a try. This is a double-flowered, fragrant, pollen-free Oriental lily. It's so compact you can grow it in a pot, yet it sets masses of beautiful white blooms with twice (or even thrice) the petals of traditional Oriental varieties. It's a win-win-win-win.

The roselilies made their debut several years ago, and they just keep getting more popular and exciting to grow. All have a subtle fragrance, a far cry from that overpowering musk of some Oriental lilies. Sweet and pleasing, the scent enables them to be grown on the patio or in other trafficked areas—and of course it makes the stems simply marvelous in the vase.

Roselily Carolina® Oriental Lily is pure ivory white, a breathtaking beauty that makes all nearby colors shine a little more brightly. Just 2 to 2½ feet high and about 10 inches wide, this is a lily you can tuck anywhere into the garden, and use in your best combo container plantings.

The flowers face upward, and you can expect nearly 2 dozen petals on a single bloom. Very long-lasting, they have been known to stay fresh for nearly 3 weeks after cutting. That's simply unprecedented.

Like most lilies, Roselily Carolina® Lily increases in size, bud count, and bloom width with each passing year, so prepare to stake it as it grows ever taller and more magnificent.

Plant Oriental lily bulbs at least 3 inches deep. Site it in rich soil on the acidic side in a spot that gets full sun or a bit of shade (preferring more shade in the warmest Zones). With average water needs, Oriental lily bulbs prefer moist but well-drained soils.

Did Not Grow

This shopper rated the product 1 out of 5 stars

I purchased this product last Spring and had zero success. I have been gardening for 30+ years and bulbs are very straight forward, this bulb did not grow. I purchased two additional items in my order and based on the price and online reviews I expected much better results. I would not buy from Park Seed again.
