    'Stargazer,' though its own clone lily cultivar, has been often synonymous with an oriental lily. Many cultivars are sold as 'Stargazer,' but are not actually the Stargazer clone bred by Leslie Woodriff. Buying this Lily from a reputable grower increases your chances of actually getting the real clone, Stargazer, not just an unnamed oriental lily.
