Trumpet Lily Pink Perfection

Here is my entry to the blog carnival hosted by Fer of My Little Garden In Japan. It is not easy for me to choose just one favorite out of hundreds of cultivars of lilies. Pink Perfection is my top choice. I love its color, its fragrance and its grace. Enjoy!

Trumpet lilies belong to Division 6, Trumpet and Aurelian Hybrids on the classification of lilies. Division 6 includes hybrids of L.leucanthum, L. regale, L. sargentiae and L. sulphureum. Aurelian hybrids are lilies that has Lilium Henryi in their ancestry.

Pink Perfection is derived from L. sargentiae with pink-purple flowers and golden throat. It is absolutely stunning. They grow to about 6 to 8 feet tall.

This is certainly one of my favorites too! I love watching it open on the screen. Lovely photos!

Love the progression of photographs. I like flowers in bud and opening as much as the full flower. Carolyn

Beautiful flower! Love the color and the shape, it looks so delicate. It must be great to have in the garden. I used to have one back in my country, but it didn't last much in that burning heat. They are very nice indeed.

Thank you very much for joining the carnival! Is always great to have so many people joining.
