Positive Carter On May 25, 2011, Carter from Houston, TX (Zone 9b) wrote:

Although it doesn't seem quite as vigorous as Tango Lily 'Halloween', Tango 'Starburst' has grown well for me here in Houston, TX, where other asiatic lilies won't grow due to our mild, wet winters and extreme summer heat. It has grown and flowered reliably for about 3 years now and seems to be drought tolerant and trouble free.
