'GRACIOLI' Oriental Lily (Lilium x orientalis 'gracioli')
Oriental Lily 'Gracioli' is a new variety in the market introduced in 2020. This handsome dark-pink flower sports white petal edges; an unusual trait in Oriental lilies. Growing to 4' in height, 'Gracioli' will take a prominent position in the perennial garden and cutting bed.
Oriental hybrids have a famously strong fragrance, are tall and stately, and tend to grow more slowly, often blooming in mid to late summer. 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.
