DescriptionFill your garden with a delicious perfume from this one-of-a-kind Lily Tree! Long and sturdy stems produce an abundance of blooms for 3 weeks in the summer-lovely, 6-7", butterscotch-coloured flowers with thick, waxy petals. A butterfly magnet that's tall enough to greet the neighbours!
Lily Trees are the breathtaking result of years of careful breeding. Breck's® Lily Trees will amaze you with massive, upward-facing flowers flaunting a delicate fragrance and providing you with exceptional reliability. All this on incredibly sturdy stems that reach up to 3-4' the first year, 5-6' the next year and upwards to 6-8' in three years! This rapid growth comes in part from the Lily Tree's unique ability to offshoot new stems from a single bulb. It's almost like planting a lily flower shrub!Lilium
Carefree and easy to grow, Breck's® Lily Trees are ideal for planting at the back of borders or the corner of beds where their massive height can be fully appreciated. They are excellent visual anchors that will help define your landscape. Bright green foliage forms a magnificent backdrop for other lilies as well as other perennials.
