Oh my goodness, Anthony that lily is stunning. Sounds like they are also difficult to come by?
Can you tell me more about them, how tall do they get, how large is the flower, scented?

About 5-6 ft tall..Flower size is just under size of a tennis ball, with very long filaments..No scent that I know of..The sight of the 'rich red' papillae, extruding from the spindly petal is incredible..The first time I saw them [all 6]were in bloom..Alas losses are high, as with most rare species, ..Only 2 stems ,this year and failed seed pods...At least I was lucky enough to have seen it! Thumbs up
