African Queen Lily (1958) in the Rose and Egg Gardens

Old House Gardens was not exaggerating when they described the African Queen Lily as "swooningly fragrant."

We ordered these from Brent and Becky's this spring and the height and blooms have been fantastic, especially for the their first year. We combined them with Lady Alice in the same hole just for fun. Queen bloomed first. What a stunner!

What a gorgeous lily -- and fragrant too. Hmmm. One to investigate. :) I especially like the 1st and 3rd images. The lighting is just perfect in the first and I love the color of the lilies with the salvia in the last shot. Thank you for sharing these lovely pictures!
