The LOhybrid Lilies are the result of crosses between Longiflorum and Oriental Lilies. They have the longer trumpet shaped blooms but the pure white of the Longiflorums have added a significant amount of various pinks from the Orientals. The blooms are almost all two tone with white or lighter edges and the deeper pinks occupying the majority of the inner part of the flower.
The foliage is broad and widely spaced as in the Orientals and they retain a considerable amount of the famous fragrance that give Lilies their reputation.
Unlike their Oriental parent, they do divide and develop a large clump within a few years,making them a much more desireable garden subject
