A most excellent lily, Anthony. It's not often you get a "yellow" lily with a red reverse.

Me neither, but I like it! That pink reverse might darken a little with one more year, too. Hurray!

Just heard from Neil that the parentage is pink L. speciosum hybrid x 'Cam Comet', so Cam Alpha is purely Oriental - no Trumpet background and not an OT.

That explains the late flowering and why you were scratching your head there for a while, Anthony! When can we visit for those five minute viewings!?
