Gardeners' Notes:

Positive TBGDN On Jul 3, 2009, TBGDN from (Zone 5a) wrote:

I've grown this lily for at least ten or more years. It has always performed well in several garden locations including sandy loam in full sun, as well as light shade. Like any perennial it does best if kept well watered during peak bloom, and mulch is beneficial. I've Googled it, and find much of the information out there is inaccurate as to color, hardiness and growth. One nursery even showed it as 'orange'; and another said it was hardy only to Zone 7! The big plus for me is that it goes through some of the worst possible winter weather without harm. It has withstood -21F over several years, the most recent being -24F on Jan. 16, 2009!
