During the summer my husband tends to get asthma and be sensitive to plant smells. Are there any lilies in these categories that have little or no scent so that I would be able to use them as cut flowers? It doesn't matter what flower type because I like downfacting lilies for cut flowers as well as upfacing.
Thanks!

Hmm... all of those lilies listed are the most fragrant of the entire group. Asiatics are rarely scented and LAs are lightly scented, if at all. They come in every orientation (up / out/ down facing) Would you be interested in any of those?

The pollen-filled anthers can be cut off before being brought into the house if allergies are an issue.
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?

Oh yes, I am interested in the Asiatics and LA's, I was just wondering because someone had noted in a post that they wished that a particular OT red or red and white lily named after a hybrydizer but I can't remember which one, had more scent because it didn't have much so I was wondering if there were any others like that.

Black Beauty, Lilium henryi and Lilium rosthornii and many of the aurelians have little or no scent.

I would try some of the roselilies that are out there
they are double flowers and not scented at all
and come in all nice types of colors as well and very showy

I just found it again. It's Leslie Woodriff that has only a little scent.

In general so far I don't care for the double lilies but maybe I should give them a try.

Leslie Woodriff is a good solid grower too, I can't say that for the double orientals, but climate can make a difference too.
