Pale lime green pistil and filaments rise from the star and present deep bronze pollen. Ruby freckles scatter from the center outward. Height 26 to 36 inches graded 10 stems in a bunch.
Care & handling tips:
Cut each lily stem with ends to create fresh surface to absorb water and remove any faded stem base. (Use floral scissors or a floral knife)
Remove all foliage below the water line and place in a clean container filled with cool water and, optionally, floral preservative provided. If you do not add floral preservative, change the water and re-cut the stems every day or so.
Lilies are sensitive to ethylene (which comes from fresh vegetables and fruits, especially bananas) which makes them open faster, but also age faster. Depending on your preference, place them away from or near fresh fruit and vegetables.
As the buds open, you may want to remove the pollen because it could stain your lily blooms or your clothes or table linens. If pollen stains occur on blooms, remove with a chenille (fuzzy) pipe cleaner. If pollen stains occur on clothing or material, remove with sticky tape ( do not apply water).
