Very pretty peachy-pink lily. The speckling on the petals is unique, and a great contrast for the flower color. The description above lists the flowers as upward facing. This has never been the case with my Pink Giants. They always face slightly downward. I've also found this variety to be somewhat more susceptible to fungal infections than my other lilies.

Pink Giant - giant, recurved, tiger lily-type flowers, heavily spotted with dark freckles; amazing; 3'-4' tall.

Wide and narrow funnel-shaped, six petaled flowers bloom on long straight stems which decorate the early summer garden like no other plant. Planted in the same bed as daffodils and tulips, they extend the spring blooming season into summer. These long lived perennials are terrific garden plants as well as cut flowers. They thrive in full sun as well as in partial shade and in well-drained soil. An excellent perennial bargain. 16-20 cm bulbs; 2-3 per sq. ft.; zones 3-10.
