Lilium leucanthum fragrant form from Chen Yi Nursery, China
A beautiful and pleasantly fragrant lily. Chen Yi has been shipping rare and intriguing plants from China for....well a number of years. I guess if I were to quibble, I'd say there could be more flair on the trumpet but this is a very nice lily. I like it in part because if it's unsupported, or supported low, the stems arch and the buds and flowers seem to be asking you to approach.
