Alan, those are Casablanca Lilies, these are mine from a previous Summer
Many thanks, Luis, much appreciated..
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.
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":
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.
Yes they r Casablanca. One of the beautiful Lily from my flower garden from several yrs ago. Lilys are a sign of love n passion.
Thanks, Patty Caldwell Cain...
Beautiful Lily Alan!!!
Thanks for the input guys. At least I know where to start some research.
Alan and Natalie.....gorgeous lilies!! I think I have Hot Spot also, the fragrance is heavenly!!
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.
