Gardeners' Notes:

This plant seems to be very hardy; this is my first time attempting to grow such a plant. Mine have yet to bloom, but considering that I'm growing them in a small college dorm room, they seem to be doing very well overall.

This lily is doing well in my garden in zone 5a, multiplying well. It is a yellowish white with dark markings.

Neutral vossner On Mar 26, 2009, vossner from Richmond, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

My Centerfolds struggled thru their first year and did not return. Did I not take good enough care of them? Were they poor quality bulbs? I don't know but with so many orienpets which seem to do better in my garden, I will not bother again with Centerfold. A very pretty flower.

Although the lily will grow here it is not a sturdy lily and certainly not a show stopper. It will die out in an extremely harsh winter.

Interesting markings on this otherwise uninteresting lily.

I love the markings on this lily. The colors contrast very well and have a beautiful stance in the garden.
