I have no idea what it is, but have you tried checking the supplier's catalogue? It might be another cultivar they offer, which would make it easy to identify. If it isn't in their catalogue, then hopefully someone here will recognise it.

That is a cheery looking lily, makes me smile. Perhaps you could contact someone from the club with a picture and request that they pass it around at their next meeting. Often club members are familiar with other members gardens.

I have seen it before, but not coming up with a name. Gorgeous. Try posting it on the 2016 thread.

It seems quite similar to 'Aveņu Krēms' http://www.lilijas.info/files/Avenu%20kr.JPG
It's description says it has a creamy yellow base color and the color of the stigma matches yours: http://www.lilijas.info/Azijas.html (scroll down a bit to view it)
But perhaps a bit too unlikely to be correct Davids beeing located in Latvia, although I think he ships worldwide and one could perhaps speculate a bulb ending up both here and there Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

hmm, that does look pretty close too. I will record the name for later. Thank you. Latvia IS quite a hop though nodding

Can't find it in the data base? Does it go by another name?

I have added it to the data base. The data base does not accept special characters, so Avenu Krems.

A K does seem to have some of the fuzziness around the center like yours.

Is it just one stem right now?

It is just one stem. I guess that means one bulb, because that is what I planted, so does one bulb actually produce more than one stem after the bulb matures more?

Yes. The first photo at this link shows how a bulb divides into two parts which will produce 2 stems. Then they can keep on dividing. http://www.mikesbackyardgarden.org/lilyprop.html

Kind of reminds me of Suncrest -
Lily (Lilium 'Suncrest')
Suncrest looks up as opposed to 'out'.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.
