Nepal Lily.  One of our favorite Lilies and one we've had the pleasure of seeing in the wild in Arunachal Pradesh near eastern Bhutan growing in low scrub on a sunny hillside.  This is not from that trip but is a good form with very large pendant yellow-green flowers with a stunning chocolate maroon throat.  Really pretty amazing.  One thing that we especially enjoy is that it creeps about via underground rhizomes setting new bulbs along the way.  It is not unusual for it to pop up 18" away from where you planted it.  This fecund wanderlust does make for an impressive display in a few years. Good drainage in the winter and mulch.  Our planting in our raised shade garden bed has had up to 80 flowers. Small bulbs that won't flower the first year with you but there are multiple bulbs so the wait is worth it.
