Love this lily! I planted 3 last fall and all three are currently blooming with at least 3-4 flowers. In the sun against a gray wooden fence they look truly black.

6-2009 started this lily in pots and it is beautiful. Lots of very dark deep red/purple blooms.

I have found that Landini is a fairly prolific lily. This year I had white tips on the ends of all the petals, I was informed that it may have been the weather. I will watch next year to see if the same thing happens.

I collect lillies and this one is said to be quite rare. In 1st year it only made 3 blooms...I hope it will have more in next season. It's a very interesting looking lily.
