star gazing in the garden

How could you not love Stargazer Lilies?? So pretty with pink and the white, towering high and smelling so good.

The Stargazer lily was created in 1978 by Leslie Woodriff, a lilybreeder in California. The plant is an Oriental hybrid lily which she named "Stargazer," because the blooms faced the sky. I would always love getting them in at the florist.

Does anyone else have them in their garden?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your lilies are beautiful. I always like to see Tiger Lilies along the side of a road, or at the foundation where a house used to be- they seem to last through the years.

Very striking! *Pink* lilies are the only way to go!
I love that little bird on the cloche-very nice with the plate.

Just wanted to let you know, Leslie Woodriff is a man, not a woman.

"The plant is an Oriental hybrid lily which SHE named 'stargazer'"

...should be 'HE'
