    I bought this lily for the name. I live in Kentucky but glad I did. It grows closer to 5 ft for me. Love the freckles.

    Well, I submitted this lily under the name I purchased it under which is Tango Lily Halloween. I see it is now moved to the name of Kentucky lily. I bought both this orange color and the yellow Honeybee Tango lilies some years ago and have had both for about four years now. I bought them from Van Bourgondien and they definitly list them as Tango lilies. So I don't know why the name change.
