|This looks more like a LO than the expensive "Pink Jazz". :*(|
Mar 12, 2013 6:56 PM CST
|Not Pink Jazz.|

|What a dubious seller! Unless I slept through the truly purple lily revolution, colours here have been fiddled: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-New-...|
Mar 12, 2013 8:42 PM CST
|Yeah, and same seller. I think some buyers will be disappointed.|

|The 1st is definitely an LO Pink jazz's flowers face out/downwards.|

|He probably got his stock from that famous name importer/seller--we all know who that is.|

|An LO for sure! Trouble is in most cases someone actually looking for this particular lily will have a good idea what it looks like. The lily pictured will be luck to top 3 ft!|

|Tracey how is your PinkJazz doing? Has B&D had it for sale lately?|
Mar 13, 2013 12:23 PM CST
|'Pink Jazz' has done very, very well for me. I think the last I heard from B & D is that they were working to propagate it and it would take a few years. You could always email them for an update. Lynette from Valley K in Canada also offered it a few times, for a much better price, like $15 or so. So it is some place to watch for it.|

|Valley K had them last fall in limited quantity. I snapped up a couple. I'd definitely check them out this fall.|

|It's all about money! If there ever is a mistake by somebody I trust, at least I know it's an honest mistake and I can understand that because I have a mixup myself once in a while too. |
Glad to hear from you. How are the seed pods looking so far?

About the e-bay lily with dark center.
I always look at the background and leaves in a photo to see if the "contrast" has been fiddles with.That one sure lookes "shopped"
The photo looks similar to other images of the same lily.
Websites usually buy images from a "image bank" thats how there can be several vendors with the same shopped photo.

|Yah, Check out the one they all use for Trebbiano. It's not even the right cultivar!! That same picture has been floatin' around for years.|

|I feel sorry for the hap-less shopper who believes what they see.|
Orders and gets the wrong plant.

|And then trades with others, who swear the name is correct.|

|Good point Polly. The misnamed ones probably came from big box, co-ops etc.|

|Thanks ge1836. Now that I see the 'blue flash' picture in the other thread, I wonder if that is the cultivar that has been photoshopped for the ebay advert.|

|I also check the plant database for images from gardeners who photograph their own plants.|
I would trust a database photo before anything on the web.
