Hello all. I am primarily a Rose grower, so this is my first time posting here. I am trying to find a source for a lily named Marissa. I have been growing this one for about a decade and now I cannot find a source or even any reference to Marissa. Perhaps it was misidentified from the get go? At any rate it is a fabulous highly scented lily that grows to a height of about 6 feet and produces huge med-yellow blooms - not at all gold. I hope someone can identify or provide a source. Thank you. Here are a couple of photos.

There is a lily named 'Manissa' looks pretty similar. Maybe a mispelling?

Yes! That must be it. Thank you so much. I guess over the years I convinced myself it was Marissa...

Good catch, Dave!

Here is Manissa in the data base. Scroll down for more photos. I don't know if it is still on the market.
