I bought some Tango lilies a number of years ago and there are two very similar ones that I lost the name tags on. Can anybody tell which is which? One I believe is " Dot com" and the other "Strawberries and Cream". The last one I'm pretty sure is "Olina"

I just found a retailer who has them both on their website and you are correct. The top photo is Strawberries and cream and the second Dot Com.

Your last photo could be Olina. It should be pretty true red.

The photo of what I think is Olina hasn't got the true colour of the flowers. This photo was taken in strong mid day sun and the colour balance has shifted to the yellowish side. The flowers are actually much more red than the photo shows.

These two pics of the same plant were from less harsh light and slightly better colour balance.

Those are just lovely with the blue plants in the background.
I photo in the early morning,there really is a big difference in color from then to a few hours later.
Rarely do I photo in the late afternoon,sometimes the back lighting is so great I just have to.
