Visit the Lily Hoop House

Bill Prescott

Get out into our lily hoop house and see how we grow our Longiflorum Asiatic Hybrid lilies. This lily variety is Yellow Diamond and we grow it just about year-round.

Yellow Diamond lilies have a super long vase life and do not have a fragrance, so they are a perfect gift for the person who loves lilies but is allergic to the scent of traditonal Stargazer lilies.

Flower Aromatherapy

Amy Nicole Marietta
Flowers for Stress Relief

Have you ever noticed your bouquet of Starfighters or White Cup Lilies smelling more sweetly in the evening as you relax? That's because of a fragrant compound called linalool--most lilies emit it, and often more intensely in the evening.  This little fragrant compound is extra-special because it boasts aromatherapeutic benefits.  The fragrance of flowers, specifically Oriental Lilies, is one big way we can decrease stress and increase feel-good feelings.

The Wonders of White Oriental Lilies

White Lilies for Easter

I never expected to say this: but I love watching flowers bloom. It couldn’t be more different than watching paint dry.

Recently, I received a delightful bunch of White Oriental Lilies. While I knew I would love the Oriental Lilies, I didn’t expect to enjoy the relaxing process of watching the buds blossom. Some of the buds have almost fully opened and will likely greet me in their full glory when I return home today. Needless to say, I can’t wait.

How to Remove Pollen from Clothing

how to get pollen off your clothes

One of the most eye catching elements of a lily is the colorful pollen which coats the anthers of the flower. The pollen provides a beautiful contrast to the petals literally sticking out of the bloom at the ends of the filaments. While being a key element in the reproductive system of the flower and a great visual element for flower lovers, the heavily laden stamens drooping with a huge amount of pollen hold a great potential for disaster. Not disaster on the epic level, but disaster for your clothes, furniture and tablecloths.

A scent can awaken a flood of memories.  It is the charmed time machine that transports us to a marked moment with the slightest hint of a perfume, special dessert, or flower.  Olfaction is our quickest sense, and the right aroma can invoke a sensational whole-body experience in an instant.

Buy Flower Arrangements Online

Stargazer Barn has arrived on the scene for people that believe quality is sacred. With this project, we have set out to redefine what “farm direct” means in the online flower business. Most online flower retailers “partner” with farms.  Simply put, we are the farm. We are the farmers. There is no middle man, we don’t source our flowers from a variety of locations, we grow the flowers right here.
