Large 36" tall hybrid LilyWe all recognize the Stargazer lily for some of the most amazing long-lasting blooms.  In this post, I will introduce you to the ‘Saltarello‘ – Orienpet Lily that has been growing in my landscape since 2012.

A STAR in My Garden Landscape

This variety introduced in my landscape in 2012.  If I would have known then that this flower would have been so amazing I may have planted it somewhere else in my garden because it is a show stopper. However, I love how the scent fills my front porch during the month of July.  The flower is long-lasting and great for cutting and to enjoy indoors.   Because of all these things I give it a FIVE STAR! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
