This new Japanese hybrid surprise lily features the same spidery-like flowers of the old fashioned L. radiata, but on a taller stem with light pink cherry-blossom-like petals, each with a yellowish stripe down the center... truly stunning! The flowers emerge atop 2' stalks in late August in NC. After flowering, the basal leaves emerge and remain green until spring.
