I bought both of these last year and lost tags. I don't see any difference in any of my whites. One site mentioned that one of them had a broader leaf, another said there was no such thing as a white Stargazer. I know the pros here can answer this! Smiling

If all of these are blooming now I would be happy to trip on over and take a look.

Casa Blanca Is sometimes referred to as the 'White Stargazer', more so in Europe than in North America. When I see the term 'White Stargazer', I automatically think Casa Blanca.

White Star Gazer is indeed a different lily with its own description and registration.

I only have Casablanca but I believe in white stargazer, the flowers are all up facing. Casablanca's flowers are outfacing.

Glad you have found the difference, Patty. White Star Gazer is also supposed to have a dark purple stigma while Casa Blanca's is lighter. This would be a side by side comparison.
