DescriptionTwice the Petals, None of the Pollen!
Years of careful breeding work has resulted in a class of lilies loved by allergy sufferers and cut-flower enthusiasts alike! Double lilies are pollen free, and offer ornate flower forms you won't find in traditional lily varieties. They will never stain table linens, clothes or even your nose, and they'll last longer in the garden or vase than their pollen-infused friends.
The double lilies chosen for this no-mess collection are all Asiatic varieties, great for naturalizing, with tall, stiff stems.
What Makes No-Pollen Possible?
One of the earliest documented types of floral anomalies, a "double flower" occurs in nature when some (or all) of the plant's reproductive organs are converted into a second row of petals. The unique look of these blooms was intriguing to early gardeners, who eventually began cultivating this irregularity on a regular basis.
Like most double blooms, double lilies lack the mechanism to make pollen and, therefore, will never make you sneeze. These sterile lilies won't go to seed, but will still naturalize and return with even more flowers each year.
