|I have some White Amber that are supposed to be planted. they were my bonus bulbs with my lily order but not heard of a Aurelian before or a Tetra for that matter. Can someone fill me in on this|
I realize they are crossed with Henryi but other than that know nothing about them.....

|Tetra is simply short for tetraploid. This means each cell has four sets of chromosomes instead of two, the normal number. This makes for physically stronger plants and blooms having more substance. It also increases fertility in crosses that would otherwise be difficult.|
The fact that White Amber is tetraploid will not be very important to you unless you are planning to do some hybridizing, in which case the information is important. You would use it with other trumpet or orienpet lilies that are also tetraploid.

|Aurelians are usually some type of trumpet mixed with L. henryi. They can have intermediate shapes between the trumpet shape of a trumpet Lily and the full reflex of L. henryi.|

|And, most notably, those that develop a more of a bowl shape, open face flower with semi reflexed petal tips called 'sunburst', usually out or downfacing on dainty styled pedicals. A number of different Chinese trumpets could be used; some more appropriate than others, but the main one used is L. henryi as the original pod parent. All Trumpets and Aurelians are classified as Division VI.|

|White Ember is an 'improved' version of the Griesbach tetra White Henry.|

|that is cool to know|
White Amber gets very very tall...........and not sure when it will bloom. Something tells me I read sometime into August her.....
I know nothing about this type of lily at all.......
OT I do but not the taller ones like this...
