Lilium (Trumpet) 'African Queen'
Common Name: Trumpet Lily Family: Liliaceae (The Lily Family)

Lilium (Trumpet) 'African Queen'
Zoom In Photo:

The exquisite trumpets arrive on the scene in mid to late July (preceding the oriental lilies in August which you should also have in your garden) and provide dramatic height and fragrance. 'African Queen' has golden yellow/apricot flowers with reddish backs and a sweet fragrance. Looks great towering over purple coneflowers and rising beside the burgundy leaves of castor beans. Good fresh cut flower.
