Such a beautiful plant! There's some confusion though about the use of this name. Seems this clone is being sold here in Australia as 'Ivory Bells'? Yet that name - no second 'e' doesn't appear to be registered and on the weekend of the show Wilbert Ronald confirmed it isn't his 'Ivory Belles'. A mystery!

Oh man, I hope I don't lose my 10 cent Acorn from this! Blinking ..A bit worrying for 'the Hunchback of Notre Dame'... ''The Bells'' or ''The Belles'' Shrug! [Truckdriving creates insanity]

Not trying to steal your acorns!

I'd just don't want it to be confused for Wilbert's Ivory Belles and I'd like to know what this plant really is. It's beautiful and really distinctive - just not the 'real' Ivory Belles. There was at least one other of Wilbert's hybrids misnamed (North Carillon labelled as Starburst Sensation!) on the weekend... embarrassing. *Blush*

It's a bug bear of mine - not getting identities right!

And a bit of insanity is better than none! Hilarious!

I was just having some fun going through the Lily Nook catalog and noticed that their photo of Ivory Belles doesn't look like this one, especially the orientation. I'm going to move it to the general lilium area and if I can I will delete these comments after you all have had time to read this.
