Orienpet Lily Black Beauty

This lily is only on its second season in my garden and it is already putting on a good show. This lily was created by Dr. Leslie Woodriff fifty years ago. Its parentage are Lilium henryi and Lilium speciosum.

Black Beauty produces a lot of tightly recurved flowers reminiscent of its ancestry.
