    This lily is a real eye-catcher, due to the brilliance of the white petals, with an intensely raspberry red stripe down the center. They are stunning planted en masse, and produce several blooms on each stalk. I've found them to need some staking, especially if not planted in full sun, as the stalks tend to lean and tip over when the heavy blooms open.
