'Fusion' is offered in Brent and Becky's spring catalog and caught my eye. Any experience with this plant anyone can share?

Neal, there was a discussion about this one last year, not sure if you read it or not? The thread "Fusion. Longiflorum X Pardalinum" in Lilies forum
Unfortunately doesn't seem to be much info about this one as of yet.

Mine seemed to grow ok. Nothing exceptional with growth. I only let one bud bloom and that was a little distorted (first year, spring planted). I'll just have to wait and see how it handles a Wisconsin winter. Smiling

The price is very reasonable compared to what the early release bulbs were going for. Thumbs up

My one bloom. As long as it survives, it should be much better next year. It was a very late planted spring bulb. As Lorn says, a little distorted but very pretty!

Fusion got my attention. Unfortunately my garden is a bit too small for me to experiment with the newer wide crosses (especially at the prices they are when they are first introduced). For now I'll just have to live with this seedling asiatic (Netties x a white centered pink tango seedling).

I think you can see why Fusion got my attention !!
