  • Posted by Lucius93 (Croatia - Zone 9a) on May 14, 2021 5:02 AM concerning plant:
    Pure white form of Lilium regale (without pinkish reverse on the petals) which is equally fragrant and easy to grow. It blooms earlier than normal regale. L. regale 'Album' on the market today is not one clone so you can expect variations in flower and plant form.
