A showstopper, to be sure, Orange Ton produces plenty of impressive 8" trumpet lilies that turn their faces upward to let gardeners and visitors get a better look. The big, vivacious blooms are perfect for breathtaking indoor arrangements, adding both bright color and amazing texture to the scene. We suggest planting Orange Ton in groups for borders and beds that pop, or in even greater numbers for landscapes that burn bright with that warm orange hue this lily is famous for. A born perennializer, it will readily reappear year after year with increased bloom and vigor. Butterflies are attracted to its light, fine fragrance, too.
