This is a very unique L.A. lily that stands 3 to 4 ft. in my zone 6 garden. The scented flowers are soft butter yellow sprinkled with dark purple speckles. Very unusual. Mail ordered 6 bulbs in 2010 from B&D Lilies (WA) - bulbs were large and very healthy on arrival.

I've had this lily for a few years and this past spring, I noticed the bulb was emerging from the ground. I left it until this fall (didn't seem to affect the blooms) and just recently dug it up to bury it deeper, only to find multiple bulbils of all sizes running up the stem. Very fragrant blooms, too!

This is probably the most prolific lily I have. It multiplies extremely fast and is also the second tallest lily I have. It is much taller than anything I have read on it but again I live where we have extremely long summer days and this could be a contributing factor.
