Casa Blanca Lily

6 Apr

The Casa Blanca Lily is a must-have for every garden.  I love it. It took me a while to understand the differences in lilies.  There are many different lilies, never mind daylilies, orienpet, oriental, trumpet, Asiatic . . . It can be quite confusing.  But one thing I know for sure is everyone should have the Oriental Lily “Casa Blanca.”  I grew it in my own garden for the first time last year.  It is an outstanding, large, fragrant, white flower.  It has staying power – never have I seen a flower last so long.  I had it in a very shady spot and have since moved it to a sunnier location.  Lilies are great bulbs for suppressing weeds.

You can buy the Casa Blanca Lily this spring and summer as a plant potted up and growing or as a bulb to plant and watch grow.  I recommend you get some of each, for a little instant gratification.  Jungs Garden is offering this bulb 3 for $5.95, 6 for $10.95.  This flower also makes an excellent cut flower to bring indoors – you will enjoy it for weeks indoors as the blooms last an unusually long time.
