Thanks Natalie, they are quite robust.

That is good to know! I need robust here! The wind never seems to stop blowing. Hilarious! I recently bought some "generic" lilies, but need to expand my horizons, and I think the ones in your picture are a good place to start. Love how tall they are too! Are they strong, or do you need to stake them?

No stakes for those two, very strong, full sun, top out at over 6 ft. I got both from Buggy Crazy (Lisa Hunt) probably 7 0r 8 years ago. Both are OT Lilies. Scheherzade is a historic and famous lily, usually available; Beauty Rose was bred from Black Beauty, current availability unknown. Speaking of which, Black Beauty (also an OT) is also worthy of consideration as it shares similar characteristics, tough, tall, beautiful, with a commanding presence and is also usually available.

Hilarious! I don't even know what "OT" means! These would be my very first "fancy" lilies of any kind, so I have a lot of research to do! Thanks for the great information and some names to look for!

OT = Oriental/Trumpet cross.
Lilies are quite fascinating, I've got a lot of them (>100).

My addiction has been daylilies, but I now have room for more addictions! I'm thinking some "OT" lilies are needed! Thanks for telling me what that meant. I really do have a lot to learn! I've always had a few Oriental & Trumpet lilies, and adore them, but I think it's time for something fancy! I need to spend some time on the lily forum, but I get confused there. Hilarious!
