Yes Hoy, it is really a shrub. Though often it is a very small one, it can reach up to 2m. if it grows as a creeping plant.

Lilium 'Orange Marmalade' in flower now with a snowy back drop..

I bought it as a refrigerated bulb at the RHS show at Tatton in June for October flowering. The cold has slowed it down

Temperatures down to -7 at least twice in the greenhouse in the last month but Ipheion 'Alberto Castillo' is looking well and even producing flower buds.
