This is a beautiful lily. It grows about 3 ft. tall and the dark red color is striking. It's easy to grow and easy care. I have it in a pot that doesn't look like it would be big enough to grow successfully, but it does just fine. It grows and blooms in part shade as well. I love this one!

Just planted these, Gladiolus "Passos", and Acidanthera in the front garden around the oak tree with the daffodils. My first attempt with any of these bulbs. We'll see how well they do. The tree is young enough that it doesn't cast much shade, so they should get plenty of sun. Just hoping that the soil isn't too heavy for them. It seems to have choked out most of the tulips... :-/ I'll let you all know how they turn out!
