The poetry of stargazer lily if the name is lyrically insufficient is tale of mythical creature frozen by ancient curse. Speckled & striped pink tiger its beauty in stillness surreal, fierce, unrestrained. Fragrance twines through air, hangs rich & alluring as cluster of grapes. Petals stretch like fingers, point like tongues, thick with pollen that trembles like a secret. Alarmingly deep, fertile & untold.
