Asiatic lily bulb; looks a bit like Vermeer.
Should be fine in the ground (if you're in a temperate zone).
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Welcome!

I'm guessing you're in Australia due to your location (Victoria) and the assumption that this is in flower now. @jmorth is correct - it's an Asiatic Lilium hybrid. There are a number of similar ones on the market, so I can't give you an exact ID, but it's not 'Vermeer' (note the spotting around the centre of the flower).

Liliums don't like being out of the ground for long, so I wouldn't dig it up. If you are in Australia, then it should be fine in the ground in most places in Victoria.

Yes, I'm in Australia. At least I know it's Asiatic one :)
Good to hear that I don't need to dig them out. Hurray!

Given Australia and the options we have here, I think it's Rosella's Dream.
Anyone with oryzalin (aka Surflan, Embargo), am looking for a small amount rather than 5litres from manufacturer (min size in Australia....)
