For the past four years this lily sends out its buds Late May early June, but the deer devours them before flower emerges. This year I was determine to assist in the survival to see exactly what was behind the buds. I used deer defense, and it survived. I was so surprised at the size of the lily and the awesome aroma. I picked both flowers and placed them in a small vase of water. For seven continuous nights my entire living room was perfumed from sunset until sunrise. Anyone knows the name of this lily? I must have planted it some four years ago.

How tall is this lily? Do you have any other named lilies that bloom around that time?
