Article lists this as one of three lilies in research trials that were relatively resistant to red lily beetle.

This, (I think), just bloomed, (8/11/08), but no fragrance yet.

I grow a lot of different lilliums but this one is my favorite.
It blooms late (August-September) and has a wonderful scent that perfumes my entire garden. I love the way the flowers nod down. It multiplies fast. I started out with just 3 bulbs probably 8 years ago or so and each time I divide it I find 20 or 30 bulbs.
