i have this lily in my woodlands garden. it receives full sun during the spring and come may, it receives dappled light. it has multiplied nicely, although not as quickly as my asiatics in more sun, but it thrives here and stands out nicely when in bloom in june here in massachusetts, zone 6a.
i too love the many petals and shades of pink of the bloom.

This particular lily has so many petals it almost seems like a different type of flower. I was surprised and awed when I first saw it blooming. The flowers are sooooo heavy that it is necessary to tie it up to keep it from falling over, but they are so beautiful and last a long while.
