Going through my lilies, I notice I didn't get any purple tones. The one I wanted was not available due to poor stock so I think I should try for a couple to mix with yellows. Gotta do this pretty quick now.

Need your suggestions. I'm open to all types but perhaps the 3 - 4 foot range is best and sturdy scapes (high wind area here).

I guess that means I probably won't find a true purple.
Thanks for the information. Very helpful.

Here are my photos of Pink Perfection. It was one of my very first lilies I purchased 10+ years, it comes back each year.

Where is the lilium register? I looked at the NALS site but it doesn't have a search, or at least I didn't find it, by color. Here on ATP I also didn't see a way to search by color.
