The name designation sums it all up - Awesome.
An interdivisional hybrid Aurelian Lily with downfacing flared flowers. Very fragrant, very vigorous.
" The ancestry consists of various Aurelian species and cultivars and L. speciosum, L. japonicum and L. rubellum in the Oriental division." From Buggy Crazy.
Ranks, in my humble estimation, as one of my 'most favorite 5' top lilies.
