Are you sure it is OT and not Oriental?

It is 6 1/2 feet tall. ............. No, not sure whether it is an OT, just thought it was because of its height.

Thanks, Pard!
It does look like an Oriental, do they grow that tall?

Probably some do with a combination of genetics, culture and location (stretching for light). I think you will probably need to recall some of the places you might have sourced this lily from then we can take it from there. I do have old catalogs from B&D and Lily Garden going back 10+ years.

My first thought was buggy's Red Bell but turns out it is short at 2-3 ft. Stigma also the wrong color. I always include the color of the stigma when doing comparisons (providing it isn't covered with pollen!).

Ok, the real answer to this mystery lies in the exact number of those dark spots/papillae. Get back to me after you have counted them Whistling Hilarious! .

I thought it might be one of Buggys., but just not sure. Went on her old site and looked, but did not see anything.... also could be Faraway Flowers.
I will go check my records.....

Ah come on, it works every time. Spots are definitely definitive. Quite frankly, offhand of course, nothing scientific here, just my best guess....... how about... Star Gazer! Yeah, I think thats it Big Grin

They both have a narrow white edge. Sumatra is closer in orientation: b. Rio Negro is a-b, more upfacing. If you purchased Corvara sometime in the past, it is now Rio Negro.

Rio Negro vs. Sumatra could come down to how dark the nectaries are.
