An unusually reliable oriental that also happens to be quite beautiful and fragrant.

Zone 9b

A great lily, hardy, tough, with slightly shorter and more robust stems than most (here anyway) and they take the wind very well. Have never given me trouble.
The pink handles the sun well, fading out a lot less than some other pink varieties. Scented.
If you only get one pink oriental, this is probably the one to go for.

This is another of the Orientals I find very worthwhile. After collecting so many plants over the past 10-15 years it is difficult to remember where I bought it. Usually I 'collect' a lot of plant material from major reputable mail order nurseries. However, I am skeptical of some, and their claims of 'authentic' cultivars. I have found the Garden Watchdog helpful in this area. Anyway, wherever I got it, I find it to be a unique color in the rose/pink/mauve spectrum. Beautiful blooms, good growth and very hardy here.
