That banner looks as smooth as silk. The fine texture of the petals are inviting to the touch and the contrast of the pistils, pop! Love it.

@GaNinFl

Which variety is it?

I grow the Oriental Lily Lily (Lilium auratum var. platyphyllum) Love the fragrance and beauty of it.

Welcome to the Agastache and Salvias Forum!

Hummingbirds are beautiful flying jewels in the garden!

Great banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you for the thumbs, wonderful comments and the acorns received.

Marilyn, It is an Oriental I picked up from a bag of three at my local big box store. it has bothered me because I didn't write down which CV is was. I know I kept one the bag tags, but still cant locate it to this day. It is about 4' tall and the bloom is every bit of 12". The scent permeates the whole neighborhood. I Love this one.

Here is the full photo.
