Luxor - butterscotch and cream with flecks and brushmarks; lovely.

Wide and narrow funnel-shaped, six petaled flowers bloom on long straight stems which decorate the early summer garden like no other plant. Planted in the same bed as daffodils and tulips, they extend the spring blooming season into summer. These long lived perennials are terrific garden plants as well as cut flowers. They thrive in full sun as well as in partial shade and in well-drained soil. An excellent perennial bargain. 16-20 cm bulbs; 2-3 per sq. ft.; zones 3-10.

One of my very favorite lilies. Nice interesting coloring. It does well in the North and tolerates partial shade well.
