They are so beautiful, Connie. I just love them, but I have had a tough time finding what I want lately.

I purchased this one from buggycrazy who is no longer in the bulb business.

The one in my avatar I purchased as "L. pardalinum" from M-Z Bulb company:

Unlike some of my expensive hybrids, these are next to impossible to kill. Because they branch out underground, they clump up fairly fast. They have an open, airy form in the garden. One of my favorites!

Not at all. One peculiar thing about these lilies is they usually take an extra year to settle in before first bloom (compared to other purchased hybrid lilies). So a little patience is required. But in the meantime they have beautiful whorled leaves on the stems, different and showy in the garden.

I agree. I think they are beautiful plants all around. Thanks for the info.
