OT hybrids lilies are super hybrids obtained by crossing oriental and trumpet lilies and keeping the best of both.  They are similar to orientals but have larger flowers, improved vase life, a shorter growing season and improved disease resistance.  Looking for a plant to wow your neighbors? How about a pink and white trumpet-shaped lily that gets almost 4 feet tall and may have 20 or more 6-inch-long flowers per spike?  

The easter-lily-like flowers of ‘Triumphator’ are deep maroon to rose pink on the inside of the throat, fading to pure white at the edges. The first year, bulbs may shoot up only one stem a few feet tall, and produce only a couple of flowers, but each year it returns, this lily will get larger, eventually producing spikes that reach 4 feet tall with up to 20 flowers per stem. The fragrance is incredible and inescapable.
