Rosy Dimple Oriental Lily/Lis
Hardiness Zone 4
This Oriental Lily grows by the pond in a partly shady garden with an eastern exposure in Red Deer, Alberta. This plant usually waits until August to flower but this year (2011) it held on to it's buds until the first week in October, even after several deep frosts. Just when we were beginning to think that it was to late to bloom it flowered, spectacular against the fall foliage behind it. This lily has beautiful light pink blooms with a yellow star throat. They are known to be fragrant and are often used as cut flowers. The mature plant is usually 1-2 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide.
