I ordered them this year but now see that they are only robust down to -20. Hope that isn't true as we see colder than that upon occasion.

While this is an insanely beautiful oriental, in fact probably one of the top 5 hands-down showstoppers, I've had difficulty with it, particularly in pots, where it's fine for a year and invariably rots out the next, despite all the care I take.
When I think about it, I've never seen it 'going off' in a New Zealand garden. I believe it's a bit of a soil-diva and needs specific conditions.

I got these lilies from Dutch Gardens several years ago, and I have never been disappointed with the show they put on every year. They perform just like 'Casa Blanca' in growth and bloom habits. They usually grow to 36-48" here, and are loaded with blooms. Some seem to have a wider golden yellow band than others, and I've noticed a pale greenish banding on some blooms where it should be golden yellow. In my journal I've added a couple of different views. Very worthwhile!
