This looks more like a LO than the expensive "Pink Jazz". :*(

What a dubious seller! Unless I slept through the truly purple lily revolution, colours here have been fiddled: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-New-Fragrant-Hybrid-Tango-Lily-Bul...

An LO for sure! Trouble is in most cases someone actually looking for this particular lily will have a good idea what it looks like. The lily pictured will be luck to top 3 ft!

Tracey how is your PinkJazz doing? Has B&D had it for sale lately?

'Pink Jazz' has done very, very well for me. I think the last I heard from B & D is that they were working to propagate it and it would take a few years. You could always email them for an update. Lynette from Valley K in Canada also offered it a few times, for a much better price, like $15 or so. So it is some place to watch for it.

Valley K had them last fall in limited quantity. I snapped up a couple. Green Grin! I'd definitely check them out this fall.

It's all about money! If there ever is a mistake by somebody I trust, at least I know it's an honest mistake and I can understand that because I have a mixup myself once in a while too.

Glad to hear from you. How are the seed pods looking so far?

About the e-bay lily with dark center.
I always look at the background and leaves in a photo to see if the "contrast" has been fiddles with.That one sure lookes "shopped"
The photo looks similar to other images of the same lily.
Websites usually buy images from a "image bank" thats how there can be several vendors with the same shopped photo.

I feel sorry for the hap-less shopper who believes what they see.
Orders and gets the wrong plant.

Good point Polly. The misnamed ones probably came from big box, co-ops etc.

Thanks ge1836. Now that I see the 'blue flash' picture in the other thread, I wonder if that is the cultivar that has been photoshopped for the ebay advert.

I also check the plant database for images from gardeners who photograph their own plants.
I would trust a database photo before anything on the web.
