Asiatic Lily Chocolate Event

Asiatic Lily Chocolate Event

Introducing a delicious treat for summer borders and seasonal beds! Distinctive lilies of creamy white are enrobed in a smooth chocolate-brown hue that is rarely seen in the garden. For maximum impact, consider planting large groupings of this gorgeous Asiatic variety. The unusual color will pop against the green foliage and multi-colored blooms of the season's usual perennials. The flowers are large--5" wide—and sit atop tall, 42-48" stems. Chocolate Event bears gracefully recurved petals that create an open flower habit and exceptional eye appeal. They are fantastic in cut-flower bouquets and unique arrangements—and they are great perennializers, too.
