Whilst registered as a OT and a tetraploid from the recorded parentage -- ('Thunderbolt' × 'Tetra Rachel Pappo') X
'Thunderbolt' -- this cultivar looks and behaves like an Asiatic. All progeny are registered as Asiatics. Comments on the Internet suggest that Edward McRae's book "Lilies" discusses this cultivar and also concludes it is an Asiatic (I do not have the book to confirm this).
