I have never had a lily like this before.............first off all it bloomed really late in the season and it was planting in the beds at the right time of the year.........
and it just finished so to speak a few weeks ago now it bloomed another 3 new flowers on another stem and we had no snow last night and hail.......
wander how this happens??

I am in my 10 week of blooms or longer for this lily
I planted 3 of them but someone stole the tag out of it
no idea how an OT can bloom so much later then the orientals even
I am in zone 5a

One of my OTs did that (Dalian) blooming into early October. It was well established too, planted three years ago. All I can say is it was late to emerge this spring and progressed very slowly after that. Perhaps next year it will be a goner (as I thought it was earlier this spring). It did seem to have a longer bloom period but I really didn't keep track. Just one stem though.
