Border Lily Starlight Express

Border Lily Starlight Express

Starlight Express Border Lilies feature dark rose-red blooms edged in white. Starlight lilies are shorter growing Oriental lilies that add beautiful color and fragrance to gardens, sunny patios and cut-floral displays. Border Lilies were specially developed to add bold color and that classic lily look to border gardens, walkway beds and pots. Boasting lush, full-sized flowers atop shorter than average stems, these unique perennials provide a gorgeous pop of color wherever they are planted. Blooming later in the season than most other lilies, these exotic beauties are truly spectacular in color and flower size. Cold-hardy perennials, lilies come back year after year.
