A very vigorous and elegant lily with a light, sweet fragrance. Color is deep red with golden yellow edges, and the blooms are large and downfacing. My first year stems are 4 feet tall with 3-9 buds. This lily has been inducted into the North American Lily Society Hall of Fame because of its excellent garden qualities and hardiness.
