Doubles do poorly in Alaska in the colder regions. Fata Morgana is the exception. A newly planted bulb will take a few years to establish but when it does, it is one of the most spectacular lilies in your garden. Grows taller than normal here and best in a grouping. Once established reproduction is good. It needs some space to develop so do not plant too close. Does well in sun in the warm spots of your gaden but does need to be watered.
