I believe I have 'Eros' and I was wondering if everyone could round up and name the rest. Every time I see pictures I say I must have them. I have 'Karen North' and Ariadne coming this fall. I particularly like 'Rosemary North' from pictures.

There used to be a nice website dedicated to Chris North's Lilies, but it doesn't exist anymore. They happened to be some of my very favorite lilies.
Other North hybrid names:
Orestes, Odysseus, Minos , Phoebus, Achilles, Pandora, Adonis, Pan,Theseus

North Ladies:
Marie North
Susan North
Barbara North
Bronwen North
Eileen North
Hannah North
Pandora North

There are more but that's all I can think of right now. I do know that there has been work done to preserve these very exquisite lilies. Here's a website with some pictures and information. Bronwen has always been my favorite of all of them Smiling

Good stuff Tracey! I did a little research and the one that is called 'Eureka' is cross of L. henryi x an L. Lancifolium hybrid!
