Description

This graceful and indestructible lily is bred by the legendary American breeder Lesley Woodriff. This man’s breeding brought the lily to a higher level. Black Beauty was one of the first master pieces of Mr Woodriff, when he first brought it to the exhibition of the Noth America Lily Society in Ithaca N.Y. he showed a stem with no less than 56 flowers. Woodriff had to create a breeding break through using different species lilies and with a lot of effort he succeeded. Black Beauty was the only survivor in a program of 50.000 seedlings he grew, the rest of them were useless or looked just like their parents. Till today the extremely strong Black Beauty still is unsurpassed. Plant her on a spot with a least half a day of sunlight and she will grow nicer every year. In about 5 years you know how nice she can be.
