ASIATIC LILIES bear 4-6-inch-wide flowers on 2-5-foot plants and are hybrids of several Asian species.  The flowers can point upward, outward or down, and these kinds of lilies come in a vast assortment of colors, including orange, yellow, red, pink, purple, cream, white, and many, many two-tones.  Like I mentioned earlier, they are not fragrant, and seldom need staking.  They form nice clumps and are long-lived planted in the right location, which is full sun and well-drained soil.  The bloom pictured is one of my favorites, but I regret to say that I don't have the name of it.  I love the beginning of the lily bloom--they provide the much-needed color in the perennial garden!
