This ‘Colonel Lindberg’ has very large blossoms that are dark blue with wide petals and a delightful fragrance. The beautiful flowers are held high above the surface of the water and has attractive mottled leaves. This is a beautiful hybrid.

Hybridized By: In 1929 the William Tricker nurseries introduced this special hybrid sometimes known as ‘Lindy’. Bob Sawyer of William Tricker, Inc. is given credit for this beauty. Bob Sawyer had a hobby as an avid car racer and boat racer in the latter 1920s, so no wonder he would name this special lily after the daring aviation career and pilot Charles Lindberg.

This table shows the estimated shipping weeks for destinations to USA states. These dates can change depending on weather and how strong the plants are at that time. For example, a wet spring will have many clouds leading to less sunshine. Thus, the plants may need a bit longer to grow strong enough for transplanting and transit. With the planet heating up, a warm spring may help the plants grow strong enough to ship before the dates in this table. This applies to pick-ups a well as shipping.
