  1. I like the butterfly ginger lily! It kinda looks like an orchid? What does it smell like?

    • Pam says:

      The flowers do look similar to a white orchid. The lily plant grows in a moist spot with long green leaves sprouting from a tall stalk. It’s a very sweet fragrance – maybe something like jasmine.

    The colors… That purple is magnificent, so regal!
