    Your Casablanca lilies are so beautiful. I put down some Asiatic lily bulbs last February and they produced the most amazing beauties. I believe they are Stargazer lilies. Maybe someone can confirm that.

    , The package I bought at Costco said these were Asiatic lilies

    Alan, you definitely have Casablanca, but Natalie, I don't think you have Stargazer, which has more red than white. Yours looks like it may be "Hot Spot": http://www.thelilygarden.com/pages_lilies/oriental_1.html

    Douglas I think that is a Tiger Woods Lily (not the golfer) it is very closed to my photo

    The white ones, if they have a strong lily fragrance, are Casablanca. Oriental lilies are fragrant; Asiatic lilies have no fragrance. Both are beautiful additions to the perennial garden.

    You could well be right, Luis. It looks like "Tiger Woods" does have a little more strongly defined red in the center of the petals than "Hot Spot."

    One of the most beautiful bouquets I ever received was all white. I got it for my birthday 12/23. It had white roses, daisys, not sure what else but I remember the big white lilies which smelled so wonderful.

    hhhmmm...I just thought the white ones by my window allowed the fragrance to come inside, but now I will check to see if they are more fragrant than the others! But, since most are finished for the season, it will have to wait until next year!

    To Lori- My Asiatics have a very strong perfume .

    @ Patricia, what variety are they? My understanding is that the presence or lack of fragrance was one of the key differences between the two types.

    You're right, Dianne. The fragrance of the ones I had were heavenly and permeated a large portion of the yard.
