While not as showstopper this is a pretty little lily. It is only about 18" tall in my garden with 5" slightly recurved petals. It is also darker pink than some pics I have seen. I think it has something to do with our weather and soil. A dahlia I have was a darker almost lavender rather than a pink it was supposed to be. A reputable seller indicated that with our cooler weather that would cause it to have a more intense color. Could be.
