I meant to label these, but life got in the way. I made an acid bed for them. Could they be Lilium Acapulco, an oriental?

Any help would be appreciated.

I tip my hat to you. Peter

Hi Peter, I don't know much about Lilies so I'm no help with an ID. For comparison, check out some of the photo's in the database for Lily (Lilium 'Acapulco')

It looks like an Oriental. It's a little lighter and has a yellow throat, not exactly like 'Acapulco'.

I think I might just tag it as Acapulco for myself at present, and then go back over previous orders and see if there is a reference that might help in previous emails from bulb folk.

Thanks Lin, thanks Tee, it may be as close as we get.

I would try posting this in the Lily Forum where there are several very knowledgeable members that may not frequent the ID forum.

Thanks Sue,

First time I have posted an ID question, and I only thought of that later. Thanks for the tip. You know what guys are like, they don't ask for directions and constantly get lost.
