Chin Whiskers, Chinny, is in almost constant bloom in my suburban Washington D.C. garden through June and July as long as I remember to feed it a little and give it a little water through the dry times. I have it paired with the shorter spider, Spiderman, which booms on either side and in front.

It took a little time to find just the right place for this lily - more sun than some. And Chinny smells great too.
