Absolutely gorgeous the second year. A few flowers the third year, then disappeared. Not fond of "biennial" lilies

I planted three of these bulbs last year. This year, I had a clump of eight! They bloomed a little earlier than my other asiatic lilies and have the most beautiful, softly colored flowers - absolutely one of my favourites!
