I got one bulb last year of penthouse lily not sure if that is what I got as the leaves don't look like any I have now.Tried to look up pictures but they just show the flower part.
It had a rough start but is doing much better after I moved it.

If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

Penthouse is an Oriental lily and the leaves of your plant look like Oriental lily leaves. It looks like it won't bloom this year but it should bloom next year. There appears to be a bit of a nutritional problem (light mottling of the leaves between the veins). You might try sprinkling a tablespoon or two of Epsom salt around it and watering it in.

Thank you
I did not think it would bloom this year after its rough start.
I will dig out the Epson salt and use that on it.
