A wonderful garden lily that looks somewhat like a slightly shorter and stockier version of 'Leslie Woodriff'. Flowers are downfacing and have a light but very pleasant OT fragrance that intensifies at night. My first year stems are 3.5-4 feet tall with 5-7 buds per stem. An elegant lily that is sorely under planted.
