Planted last Spring and now in it's second year of blooming, I can now say this Lily is doing really well here - A very strong grower. I always worry about the Lilies here because of our June 100+ temperatrues, lining up with the time that many like to bloom. And this year, it has been extra tough because we have had so many 100+ days in a row. But Bonbini bloomed after many days of these hot temperatrues and the blooms have lasted very well. One plant had 6 blooms this year and some offsets which for me, is a big increase.
