Gardeners' Notes:

Positive nford On Jun 8, 2010, nford from Hot Springs Village, AR (Zone 7b) wrote:

I planted these in an October and the following spring, they grew to 4'-5' tall and had multiple flowers at the top of each stalk in late May / early June of the next year. Most sources say that these only grow to 3'; I don't know why ours grew so tall.

These came from where they are listed as "Olina Tango Lily" rather than 'Tango Olina'.

The flowers are large and beautiful and last a long time, even when cut.
