Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral absoloodle On Aug 30, 2014, absoloodle from Puyallup, WA wrote:

I indicated neutral because the first blooms were beautiful, but during some unseasonably hot days which followed, the additional buds which opened began to have dried petals before the flowers could fully open. When the weather cooperates so that it can open completely, it is a lovely lily.

Have 5 blooms on the plant this 1st year and in spite of my bad environmental conditions for growing Orientals, the plant/flowers seems to be very healthy. If you like green flowers like I do, I would definitely recommend this Lily.
