Introducing an impressive giant lily that stands head and shoulders above the rest! Plus, its gorgeous coloration changes throughout the growing season, giving a different look to the landscape from mid to late summer. You see, although Elusive is quite at home in the hot weather of midsummer, the cooler temperatures of late season highlight its rich salmon-pink hue. Bright yellow, central stars add another dimension of color and flair to the 7½", outward-facing lilies. Within three years, this giant hybrid will reach a remarkable 8' in height, making it a fantastic privacy screen or focal point planting. The fragrant blooms lure beneficial butterflies to the area as well.
