Formosa Lily

Stalks rise to a towering 7' in late summer, bearing large 8-12" white trumpet flowers that resemble Easter Lilies. Stems and outside of blooms are accentuated by purplish brown streaks. Clusters of sweetly fragrant flowers are followed by fat, heavy seedpods that add interest to the fall garden and are great in dried arrangements. Bold and exotic in the sunny border, interplanted with other giants for added support.
