What is a Stargazer Lily


What is a Stargazer Lily What is a Stargazer Lily? The creator of the Stargazer Lily, breeder Leslie Woodruff, did not keep detailed notes of how he developed this dynamic, fragrant hybrid, so we only know a little bit about its origin.  It was created in 1974 as an alternative to the beautiful and fragrant rubrum lily.  Rubrum lilies feature an enviable, vibrant pink color, but their downward-facing blooms can lend a droopy, languorous look. Woodruff hybridized the Stargazer Lily to produce the striking, beloved colors of the Rubrum lily, but instead of downward-facing flowers, Stargazer’s blooms face upward, hence the name, Stargazer Lily.  The Stargazer Lily became commercially available in 1978, and grew to become one of the most popular and recognizable varieties of lilies available today. Over time the original Stargazer liliy has been bred with improvement for growing, and vase life. We currently offer the second generation of Stargazer, called Starfighter. A Starfighter L

Earth Day Flowers


Earth Day Flowers Saturday, April 22nd is Earth Day 2017—a day allocated for collective appreciation and celebration of this Planet Earth, where we all reside. Earth Day officially began in 1970, when 22 million Americans came together to raise awareness about the importance of clean land, air, and water, which eventually led to the creation of the US EPA and the passage of the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts.  Now, nearly 200 countries will join in celebrating our earth, with the aim to protect and preserve it to the best of our abilities. Earth Day Flowers The most common symbols used for Earth Day are trees and flowers symbolizing the continued growth of a healthy environment. Recently, there has been a rising trend of using iris bouquets as quintessential Earth Day Flowers, which here at the Barn we see as a fitting symbol of a Blue Planet. Blue Telstar Iris bouquets from Stargazer Barn are perfect Earth Day flowers, and make a wonderful gift. Our Iris are a symbol of our missio

Stargazer Lilies for Easter


Stargazer Lilies for Easter In the Christian tradition, Easter represents the resurrection of Jesus, a day filled with hope and renewal.  It is quite appropriate that this day is often accompanied by the arrival of Spring, a season which also symbolizes resurrection.  For Flower Farmers and gardeners, this particular time signals the rebirth of bulb flowers.  After a long winter slumber, bulb flowers are reawakened, marking their own celebration of renewal. At Stargazer Barn, we grow our bulb flowers year-round, but their sentimental association is solidly spring, and solidly Easter. Both flowers and Easter represent sunshine after darkness and life after death.  How appropriate to celebrate the world coming alive again after a long winter with Easter Flowers. Our favorite flower for Easter is the Stargazer Lily.  Not only does the Stargazer Lily represent beauty and rebirth, it adds an additional layer to the already rich symbolism of Easter Flowers.  Traditionally, lilies repr
