For fragrance and sheer size of blooms the Oriental lilies win hands down. Their flamboyant and sweetly scented blooms begin in mid to late summer, as the Asiatic hybrids are finishing. They are available in a range of splashy shades of white, pink, and crimson. The open, reflexed petals can be spotted, brushed, or edged with darker or contrasting colors. Oriental hybrids are often taller than the Asiatic types, reaching 3 to 6 feet. They perform best when protected from the hot afternoon sun and strong winds
