I never tire of lilies, and Stargazer, which has been since 1978, is always a favorite. Leslie Woodruff developed a hybrid of the bell-shaped, aromatic Oriental lily and the brightly colored, upright Asiatic lily, which he later named ‘Star Gazer’ because of the way the bloom opened toward the sky. This remarkable hybrid lily created a revolution in the lily world, a flower that was both pleasing to the eye and to the nose.
I can hardly wait for Pride of Barbados to open fully. The flowers open yellow and orange and deepen to solid orange. Show here with Esperanza, they add tropical excitement to a flower border.
