Not only does this lily have a huge presence and that wow impact in the garden, it's also very vigorous and tolerant of extremes. My plants suffered heavy frost damage this spring, grew on up through the damaged areas, suffered through high temperatures and severe drought, and still put on a magnificent display! I'll definitely be adding more of these fine plants to my gardens.

An exquisite Dutch-bred OT lily hybrid. 'Conca d'Or' has long lasting, gigantic blooms with beautiful coloring, wonderful fragrance and amazing garden presence. My first year stems are 4 feet tall with 8-9 buds each. One of my favorites to cut for indoor use since the fragrance is strong enough to scent several rooms but never becomes cloying or overpowering.

I am not sure why, but in the past I have purchased many cut stems of 'Conca d'Or' that look just like what I am growing now but were absolutely scentless.
