Anyone recognize this lovely lily?

Leawood, KS(Zone 5b)

I bought it last summer at Home Depot to fill a hole in my border - I could not resist the beauty of the unique bloom. Unfortunately, I didn't save the tag and I don't have a clue what it is called. Does anyone know?

Asiatic Lily- Tango Series

Agawam, MA(Zone 6a)

Looks to me to be of the Tango Series also maybe Honeybee.

Leawood, KS(Zone 5b)

Thanks!

It's so gorgeous visitors to my garden ask about it and I'm embarrassed to say "I don't know...".

I don't like 'tags' on the plants in my garden (reminds me of Minnie Pearl), but my memory isn't too hot.

Hmmm - looking at images for Tango Asiatic lilies - do you suppose it's "Halloween"?

How tall is it? Shares coloration similar to this minature, Tiny Sensation.

is the flower yellow or orange.if its orange then yes its halloween

Leawood, KS(Zone 5b)

Hmm. Hard to say - I call it yellow (on the tips - with red close to the center), but I guess some could call it orange...

I guess just knowing it's a 'Tango' Asiatic is good enough for me.

your is called the HONEY BEE TANGO-yellow

Lincoln, NE(Zone 5b)

I know that last year many nurseries and box stores were selling a lot of lilies in the 'Tiny' series. Here is a whole page of them and you see if a name rings a bell. http://www.acornfarms.com/Lilium.htm

Tango Halloween (actually Kentucky) is a considerably taller LA.

Agawam, MA(Zone 6a)

I purchased a tango called Halloween (from a big nursery like Springhill, until I knew better) & from this site I was told it was/should be called HoneyBee so I quess I don't really know. I love the colors of the lily and will keep it even if I don't know the correct name. Mine is quite tall but, has the same coloration of the lily in your garden.

Leawood, KS(Zone 5b)

Perhaps mine is shorter because it is in a fairly shady area? The tags always say 'full sun', but I have very few areas of full sun.

i buy my halloween tango from -vanBougondien.so i know the name is true

Divernon, IL(Zone 5b)

Leawood, Tiny Sensation is but 14" tall.
You postulated in your last entry that your lilies in shade are shorter due to shade location. Actually shade placement of many lilies makes them higher (as they are 'reaching for the sun').
