This is the best deep rose/wine colored lily I have ever grown. It is very tall growing to between 5 and 6' in my garden and the stems are very strong.

This is a fabulous L.A. Hybrid lily. It's flowers are huge and it is about 41/2-5 feet tall. Very vigorous, hardy, and forms colonies quickly. It has the added bonus of a lovely scent.

I disagree on the height. For two years it has been the tallest lily I own, towering over everything. My friend's from the same batch doesn't react this way. It appears to be reproducing from bulb division rather than bulblets so it really is cloning and all stalks are tall. It has done this in the first location and again this year in a new location having moved it because of it's massive height. One problem is due to its height and upfacing flowers you cannot enjoy how lovely it really is unless you are very tall yourself.
