'MARENGO' Orienpet Lily (Lilium x 'marengo')
'Marengo' Orienpet Lily achieves a full 6 feet in height when mature and is crowned with multiple eye-popping dark-pink and perfumed blossoms. Each bud will open to a trumpet-shaped blossom nearly 10" across with each petal having a green splash in the throat. These make particularly good cut-flowers and by doing so, you are encouraging the bulb to become stronger for the next season in the garden.
Oriental hybrids have a famously strong fragrance, are tall and stately, and tend to grow more slowly, often blooming in mid to late summer. Orienpet (OT) Lilies are hybrids of Oriental and trumpet lilies and take the best traits of both parents. OTs are floriferous, towering in the garden, and wonderfully scented.
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.
