Always stunning. The color varies depending on the weather each summer. It has been shades of lavender, light peach or a dark rose/peach. This variety must have full sun to be at it's best. Mine was a bit slow to establish but now the bud count is high and the plant has increased. Looks best not mixed with other lilies.
