A sweet, charming Lilium lankongense hybrid by Chris North. The developing buds are unusual in being pubescent, which gives them a frosted or silvery sheen. The flowers have a very light, pleasant smell if your nose is in the blooms. My first year stems were very short at 18 inches tall with bud counts of 2-3 per stem.
