Gardeners' Notes:

Positive OldPerfessor On May 6, 2012, OldPerfessor from Hazard, KY (Zone 6b) wrote:

Here is a medium-large plant that has absolutely wonderful blooms that look like "orange sherbet". This is also a profuse bloomer and one of the earliest bloomers in the garden.

Have been waiting not so patiently for the FFO on this one, was not disappointed. FFO was small but I'm sure it will improve. I would buy this cultivar again.

Hybridized 1993, Introduced in 1994. Most pastels, IMHO, are blah, even en masse. This one is outstanding, even if only a single bloom! Lightly fragrant, with a bit brighter yellow on the ruffled edge. Lots of buds. It has become my favorite lily for it's very showy blooms. It draws your attention immediatley. Absolutely drop dead gorgeous with Purple Flame flox & Crocosmia Lucifer.
