Oh, the stargazer. It explodes open to reveal its intense signature pink, its petals fanning out to form a star. But that’s only half of the story, the rest belongs to its scent.
Here at Nanz & Kraft Florists, we appreciate the wholeness of each bloom that comes our way, understanding that the experience of flowers goes far beyond their visual appeal. Many entice the nose as much as they do the eyes, and one of the best at that is the stargazer lily.
These are one of the most highly-fragrant flowers on the planet. Sometimes called the Oriental lily (after all, that’s the family they belong to), stargazers are showy in every respect. They prefer full sunshine and will reach three feet high if left to their own devices in the garden. Once cut, they make a lovely centerpiece bloom in an arrangement that puts having an enchanting fragrance as a top priority. As our Pink Bliss demonstrates, you only need one or two lilies to have an impact.
The sweet smell of stargazers is a great way to welcome spring, and to add a punch of color to your home. There’s nothing delicate about this flower—it is bold and assertive and unapologetic about all the ways it will appeal to your senses.
