I have grown this gorgeous Oriental Lily for well over 10 years. It is an excellent garden plant with beautiful bloom habits. Bees, butterflies and other insects are attracted to it. It is completely hardy here, and multiplies by bulb division and smaller bulblets which form at the stem just above the parent bulb. Not only is it a very pleasing flower, but is very fragrant too.
