    A beautiful garden lily that seems prone to producing mottled or broken coloration when under heat and/or drought stress. It has one of the strongest of fragrances among OT lilies, but the quality is somewhat coarse. While the perfume is lovely if smelled on the air outdoors, when cut and brought indoors it can be overpowering and take on formaldehyde-like overtones. I am not sensitive to lily fragrances and tend to like strong flower scents in general, but this one was too much to handle for me.
