Hello,
I am new to lilies (I'm a daylilies grower), the past year I bought a couple of Netty's Pride bulbs, it was late spring, I planted them but saw only one timid and small flower with no color. This year the plants have grown well, there's a lot of buds but they are facing down. I thought Netty's Pride flowers were facing upwards. I checked many pictures but can't solve my doubt. Here's a picture of mine, can someone please help?
Thank you!

Hello and welcome to the lily forum.
It doesn't look like Netty's Pride but we need to wait for it to open. Patience. Smiling

It was mislabeled. Even so, I think most of us here would think you have a very nice lily, even if it is white. Good bud count and decent stem form. Please post more photos after some blooms open. I especially like the down facing lilies. Smiling

Thank you both!
Usually my memory is pretty good and I would say that in that spot nothing was planted, but I planted some bulbs before and some of them didn't grow.

I have a down facing lily and it's this

Chances that both are growing in one spot are very very few.
I will show you some pictures with pleasure!

Hi!
The mysterious lily bloomed today, it's a rainy day, I tried to take good pictures.
Definitely not Netty's Pride.

I'm a total newbie for lilies, so I can't imagine which lily it is.
Thank you!

It could be a few different ones.

Lily (Lilium 'Sweet Surrender') - probably not, since this tends to open as a pale yellow and then fade to ivory/white
Lily (Lilium 'White Twinkle')

I'm sure there are a few others that I'm not thinking of. It might be difficult to put a name to it.

It's hard to guess the real name for asiatic and LA hybrids. So many of them ... and a lot of them have an almost identical flower shape, color combinations, etc.
OT hybrids are easier to recognize.

The real Sweet Surrender should open a noticeable very pale yellow, and turn white the next day.

This looks white.
I will wait for another bloom to open, probably tomorrow, no rain and sun and see if the color look different.
