This is a beautiful pale pink lily. I have it planted in a rather shady area of the garden and it blooms year after year without a hitch. It blooms a few weeks earlier than my stargazer lilies, but is the same as stargazers in size and fragrance. One thing I've noticed is that while the stargazers multiply with wild abandon, this one does not. Although Stargazer will always be my all-time favorite, I like to think of Lombardia as a "sneak preview" before the stargazers bloom
