Hybrid lilies (genus Lilium) are sorted into eight divisions that are based on their genetic background. The most common and readily available lilies for the garden are from Division I, Asiatic hybrids; Division VI, Trumpet hybrids; Division VII, Oriental hybrids; and Division VIII, Interspecific or hybrids that don't fit into any of the other seven divisions.

A beautiful Asiatic hybrid by Judith Freeman. I received this cultivar as a pair of bonus bulbs with an order of Lilium lankongense hybrids from The Lily Garden. I planted it with low expectations, but it turned out to be a beautiful and charming garden lily with outfacing blooms and light spreckling in the throat.
