Stargazer Lily

Posted by
Don (Spokane, United States) on 8 January 2012 in Plant & Nature.

From a flower arrangement in a friend's house. (the Stargazer lily) is a hybrid lily of the Oriental group. Oriental lilies are known for their fragrant perfume, blooming mid-to-late summer. I liked how it was nicely lighted in my friend's flower niche.

If I'm not mistaken this kind of lily is not only gorgeous, it's also sweetly scented.

I love the scent of these lilies but they're toxic to cats so I don't ever have them at home.
