Does anyone recognize this Lily? It is blooming now at 5 feet tall and has an amazing scent.

Possibly a Luminary (strain) or Quintessence, a clone selection from the strain. Sound like something you purchased?

Thank you SO much, Connie! Hurray!

Quintessence looks like it exactly!!

They came in a bag of 36 unnamed Lilies.

On second thought I'm not sure it is yellow enough to be Quintessence. Here is my Q.:

Judith selected Q. out from the others because of this difference.

I agree, mine appears a paler yellow.

Here is a Luminary I grew from a scale bulblet that I got from Judith. She gave away gobs of scales at one of the Lily society symposiums a few years back.



This one is yellowish too but not quite like the yellow of the clone Q.

Thank you, Michael. That's so beautiful!

Your base color is paler than Connies. Interesting.

Thanks, Lorn!
It certainly surprised me, in a good way.
