Both my mother in the Texas Panhandle and my grandmother in northern Louisiana had this lily in their yards. They grew about 3' tall and bloomed prufusely. One of the most beautiful plants in my memory.

Twelve Apostles has the slight bluish gray foliage from the bulbispermum side of it's family and the stiffness from the asiaticum side. The flowers are nothing to write home about, they are fragranced but I think of soap instead of the anise scent they are supposed to carry. They are a reliable repeat bloomer once they are established. Several scapes in the spring, then sometimes during the summer and then again in Oct or so. Rain really sets them off. No seeds(have not tried to hybridize) and sort of slow to offset. Well worth having.
