What are rainbow lilies? Are they true lilies (genus Lilium)? I have never heard of them.

Now Lilium 'Starlette', I have not seen that on the market in a long time. I have suspected it is the same as Lilium 'Forever Susan'. If it isn't the same it sure does look like the same and would be a good substitute. Just google around for a vendor, I am sure it is still on the market.

Is this what you are looking for? Scroll down for more photos:

Lily (Lilium 'Starlette') sure is a beauty. I googled and found one vendor who carries it but they show it out of stock: Maybe you could contact them to see when they expect to have it available again.

I could not find a plant called Rainbow Lily. When I typed that name into our database, I got a return of many Daylilies containing the name "Rainbow" but nothing with a common name of "Rainbow Lily".

I found a Lilium called 'Little Rainbow':
This vendor carries it but it's also listed as out of stock:

@Ashleigh, by "rainbow lilies", do you mean tango-style or multi-coloured liliums (like 'Starlette')? Or are you referring to something else?
