'Pretty Woman' is a strong growing and quickly multiplying OT lily for me. Some tendency to lean in difficult light situation, but the stems are exceptionally thick on mature bulbs. Normally doesn't need support here in less than ideal conditions close to a big pine tree. Stems are of medium height and it blooms a little later than most. It often shows signs of light chlorosis in the spring for me. The pink tones in the bloom will fade easily in warm, sunny weather, but it fades gracefully, so this is not a problem at all. Not as white as more modern cultivars. The color could look a bit dirty if planted close to these. A good lily!

I really thought I'd like 'Sweet Surrender', but after two years I got rid of mine to make room for others. Weak stems and few blooms.
