Did you ever order from the Pacific Northwest Lily Society bulb sales? It looks much like Soiree, a Mak lily.

Connie. HMMMMM. Polly and I ordered from Mak . I will check their website.
We also ordered from ADR but they don't have anything that resembles it.

MAK website wont open to me. I have no wholesale id on that site.
What blows my mind is I have this red lily in my files as a NOID.
It resembles Matrix but is too tall

Found it here on the Mak-Leek site. Not the best photo though. Yours has the dark stem of Soiree but that is just another indicator.

While browsing this site I came across photos of the Mak 30th anniversary bash that I attended. Boy that brought back some lily memories. I always hoped they would do a 40th but of that I have not heard.

What I do is if I feel sure but no proof (such as an old invoice) is label it with what I think it is then a small discreet question mark or at least note it in my records. I seem to have my share of "question marks" in my garden Hilarious! !

When Polly Kinsmen and I were ordering plants and bulbs, she was in charge of placing orders,we collaborated on what we wanted.
I know we did business with MAK and ADR plus 2Grow and some I cant remember.
I am happy with Soiree until someone calls me on it.

I do what Pard does, too. And if people ask me about it, I'll just say "I am pretty sure it is Soiree" (or whatever). It does look like Soiree to me, too.
