Trumpet & Aurelian Lilies -- page 1, page 2 next
Hardy in Zones 4 - 8
In zone 4, mulch well and protect from late spring frosts.
Aurelian 'Shell Seeker'

Shell Seeker(Lily Garden bred) is our favorite Aurelian seedling with pink trumpet ancestry. LeVern Friemann used to say that all his best garden lilies had at least a bit of Lilium henryi in their ancestry, and that “little bit” is apparent in the more recurved tips that let this more “open faced” deep rose trumpet reveal its sunny yellow throat, distinctly outlined in shimmering white. It holds its color well in the hottest weather, too! Very fragrant!
3 to 5 feet, early July.

SSK Each $50.00  

Tetra lily 'Goldsmith'

Tetra! ‘Goldsmith’ (LG) is our new strain of tetra Trumpets, with flowers of sumptuous golden yellow filling the garden with their fragrance.  Statueque stems support huge, long-lasting flowers.  These tetraploids have robust stature and terrific substance, and grow taller and more floriforous every year.   
4 to 5 feet (first season), early July. 

GOL Each $25.00 3/$70.00

'Madame Butterfly'

Madame Butterfly(Johan Mak, Sr.) is a wonderful new Lilium henryi hybrid with swirling, rightly reflexed ivory “butterfly” form flowers with an apricot gold throat, accented with lots of lacy white papillae (those beautiful raised “whiskers”) at the center.  Flowering late in July and into August, it has graceful slender stems and lots of secondary buds that give it a long succession of flowers. 
4 to 5 feet and taller, early to mid July.

COP Each $7.50 3/$21.00

What does “tetra” mean? 
Tetra is short for “tetraploid,” meaning these lilies have four sets of chromosomes rather than the usual two (one from each lily parent). 
What’s different about tetras?  Stuffing the cells with twice as many chromosomes makes every cell bigger and crisper, creating statuesque plants with amazingly large, substantial flowers. It takes an extra year or two for us to grow these big plants to “mature flowering” size, but the added time and cost to produce these stupendous plants is worth every penny!
