Lilium Speciosum ‘Uchida’ is a pleasant pink flower. Some are lighter than others, and I think I like the light pink the most. I see some variation in the different bulbs.

I found this lily to be slow to grow, short, and one of the most attractive to lily beetle ( along with Lilium Black Beauty.) I think I was overly wary of it in 2014, and it will be much more robust in 2015.
