hi

had this bulb from a customers garden for several years (they had moved so i pinched some lily bulbs) and this is the first time its flowered.

it looks asiatic, but has a sweet scent, and is only small atm. it looks like robert swanson or red dutch, but i dont think its yellow enough for r.s. nor red enough for red dutch.. any help would be nice Smiling

its a little creamier in real life then the photo suggests

It is an Orienpet lily, not Asiatic. Hence the light scent. There seems to be many similar lilies so it is unlikely we can pinpoint the exact ID of it. 'Lavon' comes close, as does some others.

Here are the Orienpets that we have in the data base here:

Garden Pleasure or Altari are the first two to come to mind when I see that picture. Very try though that there are so many that have similar coloration.
