'SAMUELA' Roselily (lilium x orientalis 'samuela')
'Samuela' is a pure-white roselily growing to 38" and crowned with multiple, 8 inch, double-petaled flowers of exquisite composition. Lightly scented and long-lasting as cut-flowers, 'Samuela' serves dual purpose in the border garden and cutting beds.
Roselilies are a newer and very popular type of oriental lily. The yellow pollen-bearing anthers are replaced by a second set of 'petals' giving this flower its full appearance and lighter perfume. Roselilies are slow to get going in the spring and often don't bloom until 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.
