I would say that like the above, it is vigorous - multiplying like crazy. Asiatic lilies don't smell - trumpets, oriental and their hybrids have the fragrance. Variety among the cultivar appear to be common.

A great naturalizer. This plant grows and multiplies faster than most of the plants I have. I use it for cut flowers and often give them away for others to start. It's very easy for the inexperienced gardener, too, as they are a sure thing.

This lily reproduces fast enough that I feel quite happy to use as a cut flower. It grows just over 3 feet tall for me. I have it in high bright shade and in screaming hot dry sun. Both areas are well drained. It gets just a smidge taller in the shade. 5 bulbs put in 5 years ago in each spot is now 20 stems; more in the shade- but the moisture is more consistent there too. Only draw back is the lack of scent.

About 4 years ago, a neighbor gave me one bulb.
Now I can only guess how many I have, a dozen? They multiply quickly, put on a good show in June and always come back.
They are susceptible to those little red beetles though, which I keep under control with a fruit tree spray.

I find This unique lily to grow best in full sun, to partial shade. Its best to plant these in late fall or early spring. It flowers in mid summer, with white centered blooms and a light purple to almost lavender tips.It grows to be about 1 1/2 ft - 2 ft tall. They should be spaced apart no less than 6". It grows in zones 3 - 10. I find its the best to plant them 5 to 6 inches under deep, with all the roots facing straight down. It needs to be well watered, and the soil should be moist at all times. These unique plants are a great attraction to any garden, and I love these plants.
