I love all of varieties I grow. In the Hobbs and Hatch book on bulbs (New Zealand authors), they write under the descriptions from L. aloides : 'Pearsonii' is a widely grown selection with bright scarlet-orange flowers edged with red. It was raised in New Zealand and has long been considered to be a hybrid but is now thought to be a form of L. aloides. It should not be confused with the species L. pearsonii."
