While the weather is cooperating for now, I figured I'd throw up a few pictures of lilies I have with hopes someone can ID them. I think the 3rd pic is Eros, but I'm not sure as it was a throw in from the lily garden. The last one is listed as sweetheart from B&D lilies but I believe it to be called 'shocking' everywhere else. I wanted to upload it to sweetheart from the database but it definitely is not the same.

How tall is the first one? Looks similar to Tiny Sensation, Tigerplay also comes to mind. The third is more likely Eurydike (sometimes spelled Eurydice) rather than Eros because Eros is a lighter pink.

Brian, the first one is around 4ft tall so it's definitely not a tiny one. I did have the third one narrowed between Eros and Eurydice.

Checking the database, I think you are correct on tigerplay and Eurydice.

Number 4 looks a lot like Shocking. It says 5-6' in the database, but mine is shorter. Lily (Lilium 'Shocking')

Thanks Susan, I think it is but it's sold through B&D as sweetheart

I think it looks more like Shocking too, unless you have climate and soil that tends to bleach out the color in these types of orienpets. Shocking is registered with a description but not Sweetheart.

Connie that picture was also taken in late afternoon shade, so the yellow is not as strong as in the sun.
