Rose Lilies Explained
“You would have to be half mad to dream me up.”
- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
If you haven't yet experienced the elegant and unique Rose Lily, you are in for quite the treat. These extraordinary flowers are a special series of multi-layered lilies. As you can see, when Rose Lilies are fully open, they resemble the stratified characteristics of a rose, while still boasting the exceptionally positive attributes of a lily (hence the name). There is debate whether to spell it "Rose Lily" or "Roselily", we've opted for "Rose Lily."
For all their complicated beauty, Rose Lilies do not have a heavy or overpowering scent. Rather, they possess a light fragrance which doesn't trigger sensitive noses. Second, they produce no pollen, which is great news for allergy-sufferers and neat-freaks alike. And third, just look at them! They are incredible, singular, and breathtaking.
Rose lilies are still a relatively new breed; discovered, developed, and perfected by De Looff Lily Innovation in the early 2000s. Commercial production of these exceptional flowers didn't actually start until a decade later (around 2011), and here at Stargazer Barn we are excited to offer the variety “Natalia”, which is a study in pink, perfect for Mother’s Day.
Any flower connoisseur will appreciate these stunning blooms; however, we’ve found their beauty is not aloof. Our Queensland Tulips are a bit esoteric; perhaps you would have to be a tulip freak to appreciate them fully. This is not the case with Rose Lilies.
One intangible aspect of flowers is their ability to bring people together and spark conversation. A vase of these flowers at a dinner party will be a gathering point. A box delivered to an office will bring oohs and ahhhs from across the room. Add a bottle of our award winning Cabernet Sauvignon to the box, and you've just achieved that moment where that special someone experienced amazement. This is what a gift should do right? Pairing flowers and wine is what Stargazer Barn does exceptionally well.
