About The Stargazer Lily

Believe it or not the stargazer lily has only been around since 1978! This is an extremely interesting plant because it is a hybrid of a Asiatic lily and an Oriental lily. This flower was designed to have both of its lily parents best qualities, and it really does capture the best of both plants.

The stargazer lily features a light sweet smell, bright, intense pink colored petals, a thick strong stem perfect for flower arrangements, and a flower bloom that looks up towards the sky.

The stargazer hybrid lily was created by a man who was extremely passionate about his lilies, his name was Leslie Woodruff.

He didn't keep record of exact plant crosses in his work, so, as a result the Stargazer lily does not have known exact parentage. When Woodruff saw that his new lily hybrid looked up to the sky he named it the stargazer lily, this is where the name of this gorgeous plant comes from.

The stargazer lily reminds us to keep our heads high, look towards the stars and never give up hope.
