I find this lily to be particularly beautiful. It has the look of a wild lily about it. I paticularly like the spotting.

Nothing special about the Asiatic version of this lily. There are two types of citronella. It can be confusing. There are other yellows more enduring. Hardy in the north and can be planted in late fall and do well.
