Of course you cannot smell the delicate, delicious scent of this lily, but it is definitely there. When investigating the last lily of the season to bloom, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it is scented.
Over the years I have purchased lily bulbs from a booth at a local Home Show in the early spring. Short and tall, mixed colors, whatever I could get a deal on, I bought. Next, I had to find a place to plant my great finds, someplace I had not planted other bulbs. Then i would promptly forget about them until they surfaced later in the year. I am slowly rediscovering and savoring my finds. The shortest lilies are too easy to lose in the garden, and I would not buy them again. But any of the others, I totally LOVE!
Because I can enjoy these flowers where they are planted, I have never cut my lilies for indoor bouquets. Someday, I will take a chance on a lily bloom in a hand-made vase.
