Last fall I ordered some bulbs from a co-op with Sunshine. I absolutely loved the colors of the Asiatic Lily "Grand Cru" so I ordered 25 of them wanting to spread them throughout my yard. Well after a very long wait through the winter & wet spring things are starting to bloom. Hate to say it but I beleive I got jipped, this looks nothing like what I was ordering. Although very pretty this Asiatic Lily is, it was not what I wanted & now am left not only trying to ID it, but also hunting down a decent company to buy "Grand Cru" from. Does anyone know what it's name?

Thanks in Advance for ANY ideas.

Looks like Starlette

I ordered Starlette, Grand Cru and Orange County from Sunshine. Only the Starlette bloomed and I am pretty disappointed with Sunshine.

yes it does look like that, I'm betting its Starlette (which I didnt order)
The Orange County ones that I ordered are blooming.
No I'm not happy with Sunshine either, & surely wont be a returning customer, there are plenty of other companies out there that would love to have my orders.
Thank you very much for the added info

I believe Starlette is it. Here is also a clump shot of mine.
Thank you very much.
