this wonderful small lily does great in part sun areas. it blossoms here in zone 6a in late may/early june. the bright flowers dance in the wind and the older she gets the more blooms she is producing. the bulb was just 10cm when purchased 2 seasons ago. some of mine are 3+ ft tall.

very easy to grow and maintain.
