I believe I have 'Eros' and I was wondering if everyone could round up and name the rest. Every time I see pictures I say I must have them. I have 'Karen North' and Ariadne coming this fall. I particularly like 'Rosemary North' from pictures.

There used to be a nice website dedicated to Chris North's Lilies, but it doesn't exist anymore. They happened to be some of my very favorite lilies.
Other North hybrid names:
Orestes, Odysseus, Minos , Phoebus, Achilles, Pandora, Adonis, Pan,Theseus

North Ladies:
Marie North
Susan North
Barbara North
Bronwen North
Eileen North
Hannah North
Pandora North

There are more but that's all I can think of right now. I do know that there has been work done to preserve these very exquisite lilies. Here's a website with some pictures and information. Bronwen has always been my favorite of all of them Smiling

Good stuff Tracey! I did a little research and the one that is called 'Eureka' is cross of L. henryi x an L. Lancifolium hybrid!

Thought I'd add a post to this thread, as I have recently added some of the missing North hybrids to the database as well as the parentage and series/group info:

North Ladies:
Lily (Lilium 'Angela North')
Lily (Lilium 'Barbara North')
Lily (Lilium 'Bronwen North') *
Lily (Lilium 'Eileen North')
Lily (Lilium 'Hannah North')
Lily (Lilium 'Helen North') *
Lily (Lilium 'Karen North')
Lily (Lilium 'Marie North') *
Lily (Lilium 'Peggy North')
Lily (Lilium 'Rosemary North')
Lily (Lilium 'Rosie North') *,**

Greek Gods:
Lily (Lilium 'Achilles') *
Lily (Lilium 'Adonis') *
Lily (Lilium 'Ariadne')
Lily (Lilium 'Eros')
Lily (Lilium 'Minos') *
Lily (Lilium 'Odysseus') *
Lily (Lilium 'Orestes') *
Lily (Lilium 'Pan')
Lily (Lilium 'Pandora')

Lily (Lilium 'Theseus') *

Other North hybrids:
Lily (Lilium 'Europa') *
Lily (Lilium 'Eureka') *
Lily (Lilium 'Invergowrie') *
Lily (Lilium 'Iona')


* Many of these are missing photos (at the time of this post, in part because some of these entries are new to the database), so if anyone has any, please add them!

** 'Rosie North' was named in honour of Chris North's great granddaughter in 2012. See https://www.parkheadgardens.co...

Though I tried, I couldn't find a reference to the 'Susan North' that Tracey mentions.

I know. I have no idea what the one is for certain. I have to do some more research.

I believe Chris Hind has a picture of Europa. Maybe see if we can use his picture for the database. He might have some others as well that are hard or near impossible to find
