I've had this Lily growing in my garden for about 7 years and I can't remember the name of it.

Could be Boogie Woogie. How tall is your lily and how old was it when you took your picture? B/W is a good 4 to 5 feet when established. Below is a picture of B/W in my garden taken a few years ago.

It could ajso be another lily that goes back a few years, called Porcelain Doll shown in the second picture. It too, can develop a pink edge and reverse if conditions are right. The flowers are just a little smaller with just a little heavier petal substance and maybe a little more of that 'old fashion garden' look about it.

It looked like Orania to me.

Lily, you've guessed it! Orania is the name I couldn't remember. Thanks, everyone. Smiling

Glad the name jogged your memory, zuzu. Many lilies look quite similar and are difficult to ID without additional information. Orania can be variable in its intensity of color depending on temperature. Cooler temperatures bring out the orange.

Mine is growing in the shade of an oak tree, so the colors probably are affected by that.
