|I have this asiatic as "pink tiger" does anyone know who it really is?|
It sort of looks like PEARL JESSICA in the photo but it is not.

|Don't know what it is but I like it!|

|A couple of others (but they have a few spots in the centers) are:|
My Joe Ann
and Pink Dream:
Lily (Lilium 'Pink Dream')
These two may be too "spotty".
I seem to vaguely recall an unspotted 1c pink with yellowish midveins... could be a Canadian lily... maybe mags will have an idea @magnolialover

|Buggy, what is your avatar?|

|It may be Pink Dream, it does have a few spots but I did not get a good Photo for ID. It was sooooo HOT this summer all the pinks were off color and if I didn't remember to get a photo before sunrise it was too hot for me to be out. By sunset I was dead. At least brain dead. I will save the info I get here and look them up when it blooms next year, when I have the flower in my hand. It gets to 4 feet with downfacing blooms, I really like it.|
Any other possibilities let me know, I will save a list and compare the real thing when next it blooms.
My avatar is a white Calypso bulbosa, I cannot pick a favorite lily, it is like trying to pick a favorite child.

|It looks like MyJoAnn. Received this under a number of different names from various Dutch bulb suppliers. Is 1c diploid, stems nearly black, dark pollen, around 4 foot tall with up to 20 buds when mature. Does not have secondary buds. Color is a bit less saturated than my photo shows. Currently in Lily Nooks catalog under its correct name.|

|Welcome back Hank! How did your seedlings come out this year? Any pictures?|

|It certainly does look like MyJoanne, and the detailed description does match it, so does the history of mis-naming! thanks Hank!|

|I'm really glad to see this ID resolved. I received the same mystery bulb too and it really had me flummoxed. It appeared to match photos of Pearl Jessica. I assumed it was... but then I saw pics of My Joanne and they seemed identical, so I much confuzzled.|
The flower is charming, but the inflorescence is most often like a ladder; oppositely arranged pedicels.

|Sorry to come into this late, but it certainly resembles My JoeAnn. With companies taking a lily and renaming it and marketing it under a new name, adds to my confusion. It's a very pretty one, but not super robust here, at least not for an asiatic lily. |

|yes the photos look like pearl jessica, but having the real pearl jessica made it clear it was not when they both bloomed. And it does have a ladder-like stalk, I like the fact it is nice and tall and distinctive.|
I hate the multiple name thing, I am too senile for multiple names (born that way, and age has NOT made it better)
