This is a tall Lily from Greece, said to have a curious smell (what kind of smell, I dont know). It reaches up to 5ft tall.

The flowers are pendant, Turks cap shaped, plain red, with red stamens and short anthers, grouped in racemous inflorescences that bear up to 10 flowers. The bulb is short lived, so regular propagation is required. It blooms around early summer.

It likes light shade and moist soil.
