Comments:
  • Posted by Australis (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia - Zone 10b) on Nov 29, 2016 4:39 AM concerning plant:
    Due to confusion with this cultivar and a few similar lilies, I strongly recommend checking with the RHS lily register to confirm the identity of the plant. A few key distinctions between the often-confused 'My Joe Ann', 'Pink Flavour' and 'Pearl Jessica' lilies are:

    • A photo of 'Pearl Jessica' is available on the Lily Company BV's website (who released the cultivar originally).
    • 'My Joe Ann' is recorded as growing to 1.2-1.5m and 'Pink Flavour' to 1.2m, but 'Pearl Jessica' is recorded as only 0.7m.
    • 'My Joe Ann' has a (darker) pink throat, whilst 'Pink Flavour' has a light yellow-green throat and 'Pearl Jessica' has a light yellow-orange throat.
    • Hankz also notes that 'My Joe Ann' is often mislabelled; his plant had near-black stems (the register says they are mid-green) and no secondary buds
