I ordered L. 'Olina' to plant among other pink toned flowers and got a real clash. They fit in elsewhere next season. I guess this is from the matisse series? Anyone know it? I tip my hat to you.

The pattern is quite similar to Easy Salsa but yours looks just a little bit more orange.

You might want to contact your source of these lilies and maybe they will replace them. They also might have an idea on the identity.

I have sent them an email. It was the last thing in my order from last year to bloom and just one of many disappointments with the order. I won't buy from there again. The other lily in the order was 'Graffity' another Tango type. So 'Orange Art' looks closer. I tip my hat to you. Thanks Connie

I got an response from the vendor. They said "it is a random asiatic hybrid". Forever Susan looks very like it also. Thanks Debbie and Dave. I tip my hat to you.

Not Orange Art, the spots are not condensed enough.


Not Lily Allen because the darker color comes to a point and leans more brushmark than tango marking.


It does look like Forever Susan. But if your lily is a short dwarf, then we would have to look in a different set of possibilities.

Thanks Connie. All three are about two feet tall. Thanks for pointing out the shuttle detail differences. Very helpful. I tip my hat to you. I looked in the green pages to find a well like distributor /grower for bulbs. I think Brent and Becky's is where I'll order from next.
