Regale Trumpet Lily

Regale is a species lily that grows to about five to six feet tall. Its flower is white with pink reverse, has yellow throat with lime green style and filaments and orange anthers that are bursting with pollens. This lily is a bee magnet in my garden and smells divine. This is one of the two stems that I cut for display inside the house. This is the second one. Together in the vase with a stem of Graffity mixed in. It is advisable to cut a third of the stem and leave the two third to feed the bulb underground. Cutting more than a third of the stem will result in less bloom the next season. Also, it is advisable to remove the anthers from the flowers as they stain fabrics.
