This vigorous, easy to grow, perennial lily from Asia captures the eye with its large tumpet-shaped flowers produced in profusion in mid summer.  The 5″ wide flowers are orange with maroon to black spots, and are nodding with reflexed petals.  Up to 40 blooms may appear on a single stem!  Growing 3-5 ‘ tall, the plants are disease resistant and thrive in sun to partial shade and consistently moist, well-drained soil.  The plants are attractive in beds, borders, and containers, and the flowers are beautiful in the vase.  Photo Credit Wikipedia
