This stunning seed strain, derived from Lilium sargentiae, is one of the best lilies we have grown in our fairly lily-deprived southern climate. Lilium 'Pink Perfection' makes a stunning 6' tall clump, topped in mid-June with 7-15 huge lavender buds that open to even larger, obscenely fragrant lavender flowers. Notice, I said lavender, not pink...damn color-blind horticulturists. Each flower is highlighted by large globs of bright orange pollen on the anthers...absolutely a gem of a plant. Martha Stewart's website describes this as, "one of Martha's favorite lilies." It's a really good thing!
