'RIANNE' (Lilium x orientalis 'rianne')
Oriental hybrids have a famously strong fragrance, are tall and stately, and tend to grow more slowly, often blooming in mid to late summer. Known for their dazzling blossoms the garden lily is an essential part of any summer garden. We only carry these voluptuous beauties for a short time in the spring and fall as they prefer to be in the ground and not on the store shelf. The living bulbs are perishable if not stored properly and when they are ready to sprout, there is no stopping them! If you happen to miss your opportunity at planting the bulbs for yourself, standby and catch our cut-flowers later in the summer.
We apologize for not having more information on Oriental Lily 'Rianne'. This is a brand new release from our grower in the Netherlands and was included in our last shipment to trial in our fields. What I will tell you is that they are by and far the favorite of our local deer. In one night, the buds of every single 'Rianne' were eaten...not a single one left. So, while they grow strong and upright, we can't describe for you their color or floral qualities...until next year!
