Well, I got this lily from Chen Yi last year mixed in with my L. speciosum v. gloriosoides which it obviously is not. Bummer that it has absolutely no scent at all, but it just opened today so I thought I would clutter the internet with another picture:

One of the great things about Chen Yi is you have no clue what you might get despite you thought you knew what you ordered :D Dan

Great shot! And for a 'white'; very impressive.

I like surprses myself. This spring picked up the Walmart baggie on a whim. They began blooming about two weeks ago and at first I was a bit disappointed; nice lilies in a soft golden yellow; but no POW! Then last weekend I ot the surprise; A very bright lemon yellow and a hot orange. These will be marked and dug over winter for strategic placement.

One of the best parts of the trip is finding those jewels.

Definitely looks like a trumpet, but what species? Not a pure white, with that green center. Have any clue what species it is, Dan? Beautiful lily, though.

Thanks for the kind words about the pic. I have no clue what species at all. I typically just get things because I think they are interesting!! I'm not even sure you could pic it out from Chen Yi's site as she tends to mix and match a fair amount. I told a fib apparently as well. This evening after my sons baseball game I came home and found that in the evening it has a very pleasent scent, although not overpowering at all. For anyone interested in true species lilies you can surely get some novel ones from her for insanely cheap prices :D Dan

Here are a couple of photos of what looks like your lily, Dan, that came from Chen Yi.

The name is L. sargentiae.

I second the suggestion that you 'clutter' the place with your pics, Dan--in fact, more, more, more! Love those pictures. Maybe someday I'll figure out how to post some, but it'll be the sure death of anything I want to post I'm afraid :roll:

I ditto that comment, GE. And if can just sit down and figure out the macro feature on my digital, that would be a BIG help!

I wouldn't rule out Lilium sulphureum completely, it's opposite L. sargentiae in the key in FoC.

i would say lilium brownii

if it has small bulblets in the leaf axils (bulbils) then it is sulphureum

sargentiae is white, but has pruple reverses or dark brown reverses, which this one has not

sargentiae is fragrant, while brownii tends to be more fragrant in the evening

sargentiae bulbs are purple, while brownii bulbs are white :)

That is a beautiful picture. Would you mind if I used this picture on my site? It's a Palm Beach Gardens real estate website.
