Bred for beauty, Oriental Lily 'Casa Blanca' features large, lovely, outward-facing, bowl-shaped, milky-white flowers with gracefully recurved petals and contrasting red-orange anthers. Heavily scented, this elegant Lily can produce up to 6-8 blossoms per stem and will steal your heart! Plant in groups of 3 bulbs throughout the perennial garden for a striking display! And don't forget to enjoy their fragrance on the patio when sitting outside on summer evenings!

  • Regarded by professionals as the best white Oriental Lily ever, it won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society in 1993
  • Blooming for up to 4 weeks in mid-late summer, this vigorous beauty constitutes an excellent border plant, offsetting bright colors and providing contrast to the perennial border in lovely exclamation marks!
  • It is well suited to containers and the cutting garden as it makes excellent fresh cut flowers. Plant in groups of 3, 6 or 12 bulbs for a striking display!
  • Growing up to 3-4 feet tall (90-120 cm) on rigid stems clad with linear, dark green leaves, this Lily performs best in full sun or part shade and is not fussy about soils, provided they are well-drained. Good moisture is required and dry soils should be avoided!
  • Reliable, easy to grow, beloved by bees and butterflies
  • Toxic to cats (though not for dogs or any known species)
  • When flowering is over, cut back leaves and stems after they turn yellow. This plant may self-seed.
  • Plant in fall or early spring in the garden. Potted plants may be planted any time between spring and fall.
  • This Lily is a member of the Oriental Hybrids Division (VII) which includes lilies with medium-sized to very large flowers, usually bowl-shaped, flat or with recurved tepals. The inner tepals are often very broad, margins often ruffled or twisted and usually overlapping at the base so the flower has a more ‘closed’ center. The Lily flowers are mostly white to pink to purplish red, some golden yellow and are usually fragrant. Leaves are scattered, usually broad to very broad. Often late flowering. There are 9 different types of lilies classified by the Royal Horticultural Society. And they are all real eye-catchers!
