It looks like a dark Pink Perfection. Lucky you. I had one at one time. Pink Perfection could be a component of your trumpet mix.

I might just clone this lily
never seen anything like it before......
pretty cool.........

Pink perfection is everywhere in the mix of trumpets
but this one is just Purple and no outside markings or anything

kinda stunned me when I went out tonight and it was blooming. The flower is a little smaller but it is going to get a second bloom by the looks of it too..

well this sorta of puts a stop to the clone..lol
apparently this is called a Midnight Trumpet ...and that is from the Lily Nook
researched the Midnight Trumpet and it is indeed purple
might see if it will cross with Regale though.............but likely would look more like Pink Perfection then

I thougt I had seen one also. Went the TLG but they didn't have one. Glad someone found it. Trumpets don't seem to do well here.

Don't assume that all Midnights are dark... they too are a strain and often complained about.

so if you scale the bulb will they all be dark??

seems to be lots of strains in the trumpets by the sounds of it
I noticed quite a few of them are marked as strains

If you scale the resulting bulbs are exactly as the original bulb.
