Gardeners' Notes:

I am very happy with this lily. It looks essentially like an Asiatic in terms of flower shape and foliage, but it has a commanding presence that makes it stand out from the true Asiatics. The petals have amazing substance, and the color is perfect - bright but not garish. A really solid lily. Passersby to the garden keep commenting on it.

Golden Tycoon - big, early and as flashy as one might expect a tycoon to be; 3"-4" flowers; 2'-3' tall.

The lilies in this group are a result of much work in laboratories and fields to cross Asiatic Lilies with Longiflorum (Easter Lily) Types. Most bloom early, have fragrance and great substance (like the Longiflorum types), but most are outfacing like the Asiatic Lilies. They show strength, disease resistance and tolerance to viruses which make them exceptional for the garden and also for cut flowers. The best of both worlds are present in this small group of lilies; 2-3 per sq. ft.; 16/18+cm; zones 4-8; 2'-3' tall
