I received this as a pass-a-long when a friend moved. It has surpassed any expectations I had for it! This year the largest of them grew 5 1/2 ft tall and had the sweetest smelling blooms. The longest blooms were approx 8" each.

I prefer this all-white version on Lilium regale over the other with the purple-backed petals because the pure white petals with the golden yellow center just seems to glow and stand out in the garden. I think both types are lovely, but this one particularly so.
