These are beautiful and look identical to lilies I bought last year, Tango Black Spider. I wonder what the difference is.

The color pattern is different. Patricia's Pride is what we call a brushmark lily. The color follows the veins as if painted with a brush. Black Spider is a tango lily where the color is formed by spots that often extend on out on the petal and its edges. The spots can be so heavy the color looks solid. Look at them side by side and you will note the difference.

Oh, okay, I understand. I thought the spots were just a variation. Thank you, Connie.
