This lily thrives for me in a dry windy spot in my shade bed. It multiplies very quickly. The blooms are very beautiful.

Grows well for me in Zone 7a. Buds are covered with white "fur." I've been told that the fur "is a strong indication of L. davidii in the background of an asiatic hybrid. But then, most asiatic hybrids can claim that." The vendor I used doesn't call this an Asiatic Lily. They refer to it as a Tango Lily.
