Extremely vigorous grower. It is much taller than I expected. The bulbs were labeled at 24" - 30", however several of my second year plants are over 5 feet tall! I do wish the blooms lasted longer, however they are so beautiful when in bloom. I have their roots in the shade behind a bush and the tops in the sun.

Very hot colors; combination of orange/yellow and red.
The lily is an extremely prolific multiplier. It is not uncommon that a single lily can create a group of 10 or more in just a few years. Very vigorous.
