Absolutely gorgeous Lily! Also, very healthy. Strong stock seems to have no problem holding up the large number of blooms massing atop. We had high winds while this Lily was in bloom and it had no problems whatsoever. We also have had consistent hot temperatures over the last month averaging 100F, but again, it seems to do just fine. I do need to note that this is the 1st year I have grown it so I need to wait and see how it comes back, but with other Lilies my first year, as they establish, is always the hardest. I hope this Lily ends up following suit because I sure want to see it again.

Provided a beautiful showing it's first year in Albuquerque, NM (zone 7b) with 7" blooms and an initial budcount of 5. Blooms lasted approximately 3 days here with 10 hours of full sun daily, FFO June 8. Did well with supplemental waterings 2 x weekly here. No increase yet.

lovely, smooth and cramy, this luscious lily will be terrific alone, but will blend with any color scheme.

The lilies in this group are a result of much work in laboratories and fields to cross Asiatic Lilies with Longiflorum (Easter Lily) Types. Most bloom early, have fragrance and great substance (like the Longiflorum types), but most are outfacing like the Asiatic Lilies. They show strength, disease resistance and tolerance to viruses which make them exceptional for the garden and also for cut flowers. The best of both worlds are present in this small group of lilies; 2-3 per sq. ft.; 16/18+cm; zones 4-8; 2'-3' tall
