This asiatic tetraploid comes from Terry Willoughby, bred right here in Alberta. Terry named this lily after his friend, the late Herbert 'Bruno' Sunley, who bred Bold Knight which is a lily parent to Bruno.
This lily is as strong and sturdy as it's name suggests. Foliage has a red tinge, stems are always robust with numerous carmine red flowers spotted generously in a ring around the throat area of the flower. Slightly ruffled petal edges enhance the charm of this lily and photos cannot do it justice. It is surely a long lived lily bred especially for the garden. Stems have reached 1.2 M in height and blooms on average mid to late July.
