The other most popular lilium, for fragrance and sheer size of blooms the Oriental lilies (lilium oriental) win hands down. Their flamboyant and sweetly scented blooms begin in mid to late summer (July through August), as most of the Asiatic hybrids are finishing. They are available in a wide range of splashy shades of white, pink, and crimson. The open, reflexed petals can be spotted, brushed, or edged with darker or contrasting colors. Oriental hybrids are often taller than the Asiatic types, reaching 3 to 6 feet. They perform best when protected from the hot afternoon sun and strong winds and prefer slightly acidic soil. Their enormous and fragrant blooms are worth any extra effort!
