This is my favorite lily, I almost missed it. This is a species lily, so not as flashy, and the fragrance is strong and sweet but not as overwhelming as some hybrids. Doing well wtihout much water - but may not be as ready for next because of my neglect this year.
The rose is "Happy Child", getting by and occasionally blooming. It took about 4 years from cutting stage to really perform.
