LILY VARIETIES When I hear the name Lily - I think of three things, the classic white Easter Lily, a Tiger Lily, and a stargazer lily. are very showy and often extremely fragrant. The room with this flower display was almost overwhelming. They flower shape is 6 plain or marked tepals ("petals") sitting atop tall, erect stems. You can find them in a wide array of colors and blooming times. I have never had luck in my garden because of not enough sunlight and those Damn Deer!
