This is the most famous lily of them all. And no wonder. Stargazer is one of many hybridized from the world-famous species, Lilium speciosum rubrum, the wild red lily of Japan. But this one has become everyone's favorite because it's the lily that has everything. It is incredibly beautiful, very easy to grow, not too tall and has strong stems. In addition, the large, fragrant blooms are upward-facing, a rare quality for an Oriental Hybrid lily; most others are outward facing, like Casa Blanca. These upright blooms make Stargazer extra-useful for florists, and also guarantee a big beautiful show in your garden.

The blooms of Stargazer vary somewhat. Some bulbs will produce flowers with almost solid red petals, but always with the white margins. Others, and this includes most, look exactly like the photo above with deep pink blending to red, showing spots.

No one can have too many of these. Plant enough to have them for cutting and for highlights in your mid to late summer garden.

Spectacular lilies for your garden; it's easy. Everybody loves lilies, and today's hybrids are a snap to grow, unlike some of the more difficult ones of the past. Today's favorites are no more work than growing a tulip or daffodil. Oriental Hybrid Lilies are the now famous, very fragrant ones with large, flattened flowers such as red Stargazer and white Casa Blanca. They bloom from mid-summer through early fall.
