When it comes to fragrance, Lilies have few rivals. Their exquisite and lovely perfume combined with the dazzling beauty of their flowers are enough to transport you to tropical climes or lift your spirit when passing by. However, not all Lilies are fragrant. For instance, most of the Asiatic Hybrid Lilies, which are among the earliest to bloom in early-mid summer and the easiest to grow are unscented. Other Lilies enjoy a subtle scent and are agreeably fragrant while others exude such an overpowering perfume that it is sometimes felt as "overwhelming".
- Interdivisional Hybrid Lilies are the result of crossing between the various Hybrid Divisions. LA Hybrids are the result of crossing Lilium Longiflorum (Easter Lily) with Asiatic Lilies. These LA Lilies have larger flowers and a very slight fragrance.
- OT Hybrid Lilies or Orienpet Lilies are the result of crossing Oriental Lilies with Trumpet/Aurelian Lilies. They combine the incredible beauty of the Oriental Lilies with the robustness, heat tolerance and colors of the Trumpet & Aurelian Hybrids. The best of both worlds.
- Many exude a delightful fragrance that will stop you when you pass by!
