Thanks Joan for the post about first year blooms. I thought I got a bum deal from the supplier because mine bloomed as a single. I saw your post though and so I uploaded my picture of a first year bloom. I do like the color on this Lily and it had multiple blooms the first year.

I began with five bulbs three summers ago. Today there are at least three times as many plants and they are sturdy, hardy and absolutely gorgeous. They're in an area of my yard that is fairly protected, which is what allows them to do so well in my zone 3a garden. They're quite a bit taller than I expected, which turned out to be a blessing because the shrub I planted them behind is a monster!

Editor's Note

There have been reports that some of the photos in this entry are misidentified because 'Elodie' is described as a double bloom. We've learned that this cultivar is one of those that often blooms as a single in it's first year and then takes on the characteristic double form in subsequent years.
