Lilies (Lilium species) are herbaceous flowering plants that grow from bulbs. The range of lilies in the Old World extends across much of Europe, across most of Asia to Japan and to the Philippines. In the New World, they extend from southern Canada through most of the United States. The Lilies compromise a genus of about 110 species and are most commonly native to the northern hemisphere. They are generally adapted to woodland habitats, often montane, or sometimes grassland to habitats.
Obviously the White Lily is white but lilies range in color from orange and red to purple, yellow and rose with an intense fragrance. The cultivars vary from eighteen inches to six feet tall for the White Oriental Lily. This lily is very heavily scented and produces wide-mouthed “trumpet” like flowers. Although the Oriental Lily is considered to be a hardy plant, they often times require staking because of their heavy trumpet blooms.
