|According to my records, these are "MonteNegro lilies" given to me by Zuzu 2 years ago. This is the first year they have bloomed (don't ask...bless their little tough hearts!).|
Obviously, they are not Monte Negros. Zuzu had ordered these bulbs and had them sent directly to me as a housewarming present, and those were the only lilies I got. I'm thinking that the bulbs were mis-marked.
Either way, they are spectacular! They would like to have their proper name though

|I would say it is either Forever Susan or Starlette, they look very similar.|
Lily (Lilium 'Forever Susan ®')
Lily (Lilium 'Starlette')
Forever Susan seems to be the one that is more commonly available.

|Thank you, Connie! |
It looks like the Starlette has a lighter purple before the orange, which the Forever Susan (and mine) doesn't. That makes me lean toward the Forever Susan.

|Looks like 'Forever Susan' to me too. |

|I don't remember when I sent you lilies, but it had Starlette in it, I think. Maybe you got last years and this years mixed up, is that possible? Of course I've never mixed up anything in my life, LOL.|

|I think *I'm* mixed up at the moment!! |
I'm going to go back and check tree-mails. I know for sure that I have "Polly's lilies" (2 different varieties) in a different place. So, either I replanted a third variety that you sent in the exact location because I really wanted lilies there, or ????
If you did indeed send Starlett, these are them, because they aren't anywhere else. I was doing really well labeling last year, or so I thought!
Never fear...I'm not usually this mixed up....really!!

|Starlette, Olina and Golden Stone should have been in there. But who knows what I did.|

|I would say "who knows what *I* did! |
Well, that clears up that mystery. Part of it anyway. Now I wonder what happened to the Monte Negros, and the labels! (and my brain).
Polly- the first of your lilies are blooming! They are beautiful!!
