Bought as a potted lily, Jackson & Perkins, fall of 2005, discounted at Lowe's did not get a chance to plant it so it was still in the pot out side in the snow, planted it spring 2006.
Has a dwarf habit, plant to the front part of the bed so it doesn't get overpowered by larger plants.
Intensely fragrant.
