Hello, I am hoping someone can help me with these lilies.

They were purchased from a coop on another site a couple years ago and they appear to be mislabeled.

This one was purchased as Anastasia but look how dark it is.

This one was purchased as Bonbini

Do you recall the company the co-op was though? Sometimes it helps to go to their website and browse the lilies.
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?

Alas, I checked my records and it was actually on here with a member who is no longer part of ATP. He used many sources and actually several plants I got from him died or were the wrong thing ( Picasso canna was just a plain red one) so it is no help to check there.

Your Anastasia looks a bit like Red Dutch at Valley K lily farm. You may never know for sure what it is, but it is beautiful.

No names come to my mind, but they're very nice lilies. We all have lilies that were mistakes or didn't come from the best suppliers but we love them just the same. I have lots of things labelled along the lines of "big pinkie" so it has a name of some sort. Smiling

I agree with Moby. I have a few NOIDS too. If they turn out to be something I don't like, then out to the curb for someone else to enjoy. I include a note saying the name is unknown.

I tip my hat to you. Thanks for trying, I figured it was a long shot. Daylilies are the same way.
They will be staying even without a name.

Never hurts to ask. Lilies are waayyy easier to ID than daylilies.
