A hybrid lily of the Oriental group, known for its fragrant perfume, blooming mid to late Summer............but unusually early this year, due I'm sure to our hot, dry weather.
Mine began opening their blooms this week. I cut a few to bring indoors although I find their perfume far too heavy. I always clip off the pollen laden anthers because they can stain fabrics and your skin, and these stains are hard to remove.
