Botanical Name

LILIUM 'Tarragona' PP16090

Plant Common Name

Oriental Trumpet Lily, Tarragona Lily

General Description

The elegant ‘Tarragona’ bears huge, fragrant, outward facing, creamy white blooms with lemon yellow centers. These trumpet-shaped flowers are borne in succession from mid- to late-summer on tall sturdy stems lined with lance-shaped green foliage.

Orienpet lilies are produced by hybridizing trumpet lilies and Oriental lilies. They tend to have large, broad, trumpet-shaped flowers with a strong sweet fragrance. Once they have flowered they will not bloom again until the following year, so be sure to plant them with ornamentals that look great later in the season.

This lily prefers full to partial sun and neutral, well-drained, humus-rich soil. They grow from scaled bulbs that are easily planted. The typical depth is eight inches for orienpets. Beauties like ‘Tarragona’ are ideal for perennial borders, large containers and cutting gardens; anywhere where their color and fragrance can be appreciated.
