Small flowers for the plant height. Hardy and blooms well. Very pale with no endearing qualities. Fades what little color it has. I would not buy this plant if I had seen it in person and not just a photograph. Boring with no real beauty. I consider it my ugliest lily.

Beautiful Asiatic that blooms in early summer on 3 foot stems. Afternoon shade is best so the blooms don't burn in the hot sun. This lily has no fragrance.
