I ordered the following back in April (http://www.dutchbulbs.com/) and after planting them and waiting for them to bloom, I notice they don't look like the stock photos listed on the website I ordered them from.

I also ordered 'BORDER LILY ABBEVILLE'S PRIDE'
Stock photo from the website below:

I ordered 'ASIATIC LILY 'LONDON HEART'
Stock photo from the website unavailable but they should look something like this:

The flowers that are blooming in my wine barrels are attached below and I don't think they look like either of the bulbs I ordered. If anyone could help me identify them, I would greatly appreciate because I think they just sent me something else.

Neither looks anything like what you ordered. I would send the photos to the company and ask for a refund. The second one may end up being very nice once it fully opens. The first one looks a lot like one I grow. It was a wrongly ID'ed one too and I have never found a match for it. I call it citrus orange. You might be able to see it in this photo. I like it and it's one of the few NOID's I grow.

I sure appreciate your response. I didn't bother emailing them because I read up on the company and they have tons of bad reviews for the similar issues. I just went went right to a PayPal dispute because other sellers in those same reviews wrote that they never respond to emails other than the automatically generated responses they received. I just had my hopes on actually receiving the items I ordered because I loved the colors. Yours look great by the way. Hurray!

Thanks again for your help....

Hope you end up getting the ones you want. Most of us have had bad experiences with at least one or 2 companies. It's not always the seller's fault but this company makes ways too many mistakes.

@stilldew, they haven't responded to my claim that I initiate and it's been 3 days. If they would make it right, I would gladly accept the replacement bulbs. My only problem is, I received 6 different bags labeled with a professional looking label and none of them are the products I ordered. I'm just afraid if I didn't file the claim to check into the matter, to much time would pass and I wouldn't have the buyer protection that they offer. It really wouldn't be a big deal if I had spend a small amount of money but my total was $190+ so I feel like they should make it right by sending me the correct ones or refunding me my money. I guess I don't know what to really do besides sit back and wait to hear their response.
