This has been a weak first year grower for me, but it has such an amazing color that I have already ordered a few more bulbs for fall planting. The flowers are white with warm, smoldering golden-orange centers. The flowers glow and seem to be lit from within. This lily has proven rock solid hardy for many gardeners, so I am sure it is just a matter of time before it settles in. Photos cannot convey how lovely this lily is in person.
