Lighten up your summer garden with a collection of fantastic double, outward-facing, pollen-free, Oriental Lilies of the very newest and best varieties. The Roselily series introduces double-flowered Orientals in soft, pretty colors, their strong musky scent replaced by a lighter, more pleasing aroma. Quite manageably sized at 2 to 3 feet high, these summer bloomers are long-lasting and absolutely stunning in garden and container.

Introduced in Europe a few years ago and just bursting onto the scene here, Roselilies blend together harmoniously in soft shades of pink, green, yellow and white. Boasting 18 petals instead of the traditional 6, they are actually triple-flowered, but who's counting?! The flowers open 5 to 6 inches wide, and take their common name of Roselily from the masses of rose-like petals they bear. And did we mention that they are pollen-free, so you don't have to clean up after them in the vase?

Blooming from July through August in most climates, Roselilies sport soft shades of pink, cream, pale green, and rose. In this collection, you get one each of five named varieties:

The pink shades come from a trio of varieties. 'Natalia' offers clear pink blooms with soft pinkish-white edges and a green eye zone. 'Elena' produces dark pink flowers with a yellow-green throat. 'Belonica' contributes sweet pink blooms with softer pink edges.

'Annika' supplies the green, a pale hue with white edges on the petals, or white petals with pale green stripes, depending on your perspective. The green is darker in cooler climates.

'Carolina' provides nice contrast with its bright white blooms with an inviting creamy primrose mix toward the eye zone.

The flowers on these Roselilies combine to create an intoxicating sweet fragrance. Long-lasting throughout the summer, they thrive in full sun or with partial shade, and are extremely cold tolerant. Spectacular together in the garden, in containers and as cut flowers, they require moist, well-drained soil with consistent water in the spring. Expect them to increase in plant size, bud count, and bloom strength as they mature, as other Oriental lilies do. Zones 3-8. Pack of 5.
