featured at Longwood Gardens
Lilytopia is the largest lily show
in North America and shows off
the latest varieties of lilies
developed by Dutch breeders.
Longwood Gardens is located
in Kennett Square, PA.
The property was originally owned and
developed by Pierre du Pont
to preserve the trees.
It is now maintained by a foundation
set up by du Pont for this purpose.
This season was a second for Lilytopia.
Can you imagine the wonderful fragrance?
Some of these lillies have never
been seen before in the USA.
The show was inspired by the world-famous
lily show at Holland's Keukenhof...
...and designed by renowned Dutch floral designer,
Dorien van den Berg...
...with displays of more than
10,000 cut flowers.
Showcasing of the newest varieties of lilies
developed by Dutch hybridizers.
Here a lily...

Everywhere you look a lily.
The show was created to get
us excited about lillies.
I'm excited about lillies now...
