Common names:  lily, Asiatic lily, Oriental lily

Description:  Trumpet-shaped flowers grow to a 6-inch diameter.  Stems grow to 3 feet long, carrying four to eight blossoms.  Sparse foliage is dark green.  Because blooms open at various times, most lilies live one to two weeks.  Colors include white, yellow, pink, red and orange; many have a deeper color (freckles) on the inner petal.

Special care:  To prevent pollen from staining petals or clothing, remove stamens.
