Gardeners' Notes:

Positive 4paws On Jun 22, 2008, 4paws from Citra, FL (Zone 9a) wrote:

This lily will always have a place in my garden. It is a clear dark pink, almost red lily that produces a dozen blooms which start opening from the bottom and continue to open for several weeks. It is doing well in both half-shade and full sun locations, with only minor leaning in the shaded area and no staking required though it is about 48" tall.
