Here are photos of species L. rosthornii. It looks like L. henryi, but I purchased it from Judith Freeman several years back.

Really beautiful flowers, Mike.

As far as I know, the "black heart" characteristic evident in your photos is always from L. rosthornii, but the easiest way to tell the two species apart is the lower group of the dimorphic leaves:
rosthornii = narrow leaves
henryi = wide leaves

Lilium rosthornii

Very nice. I also believe that they are said to have a straighter and stronger stem than henryi as well.

That's right, Joe, but it's a matter of general comparison and not absolute.
