Thank you

Hi Robert

Any of the Oriental or Roselily varieties are all highly fragrant including the Oriental Trumpet Lilies (these are the taller varieties).

As a general rule of thumb, the whiter the lily the stronger the scent as they don’t have the colour to attract insects, they have the perfume instead. You can use our filtered search on the website and search by colour.

Oriental Lilies
Double Oriental Lilies
Oriental Trumpet Lilies

White oriental lilies have the strongest fragrance.
