pls add that cultivar wich is called Stargazer

here some information from wiki
Lilium "Stargazer" (the Stargazer lily) is a hybrid lily of the Oriental group. Oriental lilies are known for their fragrant perfume, blooming mid-to-late summer. Stargazers are easy to grow and do best in full sunlight. [1] They have a fast growth rate and should be planted in full sun in well drained loamy or sandy soil. When mature, Stargazers can grow to a height of 36 inches with a spread of 12 to 16 inches with 4 to 5 flowers per stem.

Stargazer lilyThe Stargazer lily was created in 1978 by Leslie Woodriff,[2] a lily breeder in California. Woodriff called the new cross "Stargazer," because the blooms faced towards the sky. Known for its striking white, red, and pink petals, and heavenly scent, this lily has become a favorite for many occasions. [3]

The ASPCA reports this plant as being toxic to cats. They are said to cause vomiting, inappetence, lethargy, kidney failure, and even death. Cats are the only species known to be affected.[4]

This flower is known to symbolize devotion

This is registered as 'Star Gazer' in the RHS Lily Register. I know a lot of places will sell it as the one word name. I just fixed it so a search will bring it up if a search is done for Stargazer.

Here is the place to submit photos:
