Heres a better pic of the misnamed bulb. It definitely looks like Nettys Pride to me . Quite pretty and still small this year due to a small bulb, I presume.

I am really worried because these things are quite rare. The gentleman (who posted it today) is a collector ...I don't know if he sells them. I tried to talk him out of it but he insisted.
The reason for my worry Anthony, is the heat, I think they require much cooler conditions. Would they be ok in fairly heavy shade until the weather cools down ? it hit 40C here with hot drying wind, so if I put it in a very sheltered shady situation do you think it will survive ?, you can imagine how awful I would feel if my thumb suddenly turned brown.

I just read the growing conditions and I'm sure that you could manage them...just watch out for the woman from the north...she likes a challenge...though you might be safe it doesn't say that it's scented..lol
Beautiful thing Chrissy, good luck with it.

Most plants can live on 1 to 1 1/2 hrs of sunlight a day[usually the morning sun is best,.,.[plant doctors swear by it]-but keeping up the humidity is going to be your task,.,.i have a friend who grows related species in a big sunroom facing north-- he wins and he loses- thats what growing is all about, but i saw a dark red, almost purple there on sunday, that really sat me down to take a 2nd look,,.it was incredible,..,also,you should investigate the 'clay hydroponic balls' as a growing medium,-they are similar to volcanic rock and popular with orchid growers

Ahhh, I just came back from checking my Lilium’s and a freaking bird has had a go at my "Triumphator". Why would a bird want to eat it? So not fair, I hope it gets a really bad tummy ache from it.

Oh well my next one that has a big bud coming up is 3x “white pixels” which flowers true to type from Tesselaar,

others I have from last years catalogues are 3x “regal lily” from Garden express 2 are true to type and one that is all purple?

3x “muscadet” from Tesselaar which was not the true bulb – got my money back for this one as the company said there supplier made a mistake with the whole batch, Anyway will post pictures for someone to identify.

This years effort for bulb buying was 10 bulbs of “tickled pink” was renamed “tigerwoods” in the next editions catalogue? From Broersen
Can’t wait to see if the flower true to type as I love the speckled oriental lilies.

There are also older ones in the garden, but can’t remember all the names and a few have died from neglect.
I used to have “mero star” and it last flowered with over 10 blooms on one stem then died.

There should be “star gazer” “titanco” “star fighter” “barbaresco” “Acapulco” “narbonne” “royal sunset” “Toronto”
and miniature colours in Asiatic
most of these don’t flower every year as I don’t bother with them.

YAY I now have a name for my Lilium.

I think the other flower is called Trumpet Lily 'Pink Perfection'
I have been looking at pictures of different Lilium’s in the trumpet flower type and this name comes up heaps, all the photos range from very light pink to purple.

A nice surprise in the garden anyway.

Oh and I forgot to ask last time – I had 2 lilies last year do something weird.
When I was collecting seeds from the pods 3 seeds had germinated inside.

I planted them out and they died back and this year I have little single leaves up where I planted them, how long does it take to become flowering plants and do they need any special treatment to make them grow better.

While I am thinking of lily’s last year I swapped for this lily.
It a Gloriosa superba, a.k.a., flame lily or fire lily.
I thought it would grow like a normal lily, but when my lilium stems had emerged out of the ground this hadn’t, so with curiosity I emptied the pot it was in and found out they grow nothing like lilium bulbs. I have now put them back into 2 different pots as they have multiplied.

Now is this how they are supposed to sprout, I have put the sprouted ones in the way they are growing, and the bulbs are now covered in dirt, but I am sure when I got the plant the bulbs were on the surface.

Lovely everywhere. Mine are decicing to flower after so long a wait.
The biggest are the older asiatics I moved last year. They are all in the ground and seem to be thriving.
This is the yellow. You can see the amount of buds they have all produced.
I expect all the new liliums from this year will be bigger next year too.

I grew these from seed a few years ago and they grew like weeds and quickly too.
Now I have about 8 or so around the place. Flowers nicely too.

Dianne, I think any problems I have with photos is the user as the camera can do anything. I will have to sit down and study the book again one day. Its a thick handbook.
I find my pics look better taken on cloudy days. The sun tends to leach the color a bit.
There are most likely a dozen settings I can use. One day I'll find them... LOL

I know in Sth Australia 2 yrs ago,they cancelled the lily show because it had been too hot and everything had expired,..,I have about 80 orientals and 30 orienpets set aside trying to get the perfect bloom,but even some of them will have been and gone,..,what do you do?,everyone here is in the same boat,.,.I get very worked up and edgy, heading into a show, and this year taking over presidency means a lot to me,.,.i want everything to just ''flow'' smoothly,..heres our adv flier

Good luck with getting at least, most of your liliums to the show in perfect condition. It is hard when the weather and show dates dont coincide. I often found that with the local show. My irises would be weeks too late. Same with markets. You want to show flowers out, but they dont oblige at the right time.
I hope you win every class you enter.
I like the little liliums as much as the big bold ones. They are so cute. I am now waiting on some of the nodding ones.

I nearly forgot to answer your query. Yes, the white did open with green inside.

Anthony thinks it might be this one, grapus...Diploid trumpet Aureliens... Dr J Halinar.
What do you think?...the perfume isn't overpowering, just a typical Lilium sweetness.

Now this one below is a bit screwy...it's petals seemed stuck together and it couldn't open up properly..
but the perfume is lovely...more like a perfume with a citrus undertone...I would love to be able to bottle it...it is more a butter colour...quite a nice colour...with a couple of faint splashes of rust.
Unfortunately the next bud looks like having the same problem ...

I had that last year with mero star I think was the name, it was separating in the middle and the tips weren’t opening with it, you can jiggle it out and it will open. Yes the lily buds will be ok next year, I think it sucked up too much water then wanted to open the bud, the petals ended up sticking. Nothing to do with virus or genetics. Mero star had flowered twice before with no problems. Just random oddities.

Love all the flower pics.

Heres an update of white pixels, all smaller flowers than last year.

Wow you are great at identification of lilies
I didn’t even notice that the very centre has a slight faded white to it, all I saw was huge bright pink flowers! It also has a nice strong main stem that is over 1cm thick, it’s defiantly the strongest lily I have this season, whoever grew it did a great job. I have slightly taller other lilies but they are on flimsy thin stems and needed to be stacked up.
And yes I went and sniffed it this morning and it has a great light pretty smell to it, very nice.

Dianne, that seed you grew into a flower,came from one of the most renowned breeders in America, and also a very decent man, in his latter years..He specialises in Tigrinum and pendant speciosum crosses,.- what grows for you now, i can guarentee you will never purchase again, as it has already been taken from his list,.,.so now you can position yourself up there in the'' meritable growers'' section !!!

Jean - I dug in organic matter & the ash from my pellet fire before I planted the lilies, I also feed the roses along there so the lilies probably got the benefit too.

My asiatics are looking good, the seedlings from last year are from one of my RSA regulars who has done a bit of winning with his over the years.

The bulbs I planted are from another RSA member who separated them by colour but not type so they are a mystery mix.
Mum gave me some of her Xmas lilies & I suspect the white one that flowered first might be one of those.
I found another two further up the garden flowering, the rain has been so bad that I hadn't noticed them opening.

It's funny, I tried to plant in groups of 3 but it doesn't look like they are coming up that way.
I swear they must crawl about under the soil until they are where they want to be!

Only time will tell if I have the little pockets of colour I planned or if they will be randomly scattered.

Anthony, look at this lovely one. It has no label so must be from a mixed lot I bought on eBay last year.
It is so spotty, I love it.
There is another with a smaller flower that has quite thick petals. I think it was misformed. I will wait until another bud opens and get a pic.
I brushed the pollen from some of the liliums while getting a photo and the stuff stuck to me and stained the skin. I had to wash my hands twice to get it off. No wonder it sticks to the bees.

that Longiflorum is so lovely!
Does it have a greenish hue along the backs of the petals?
If so then I think I know what the other Xmas lily I have seen is...
at Johnson's the Grocer in town he had a big bunch of white lilies on his counter, they weren't like my Regale which is pink along the back of the petals & the fragrance was lovely bit slightly different.
And speaking of Xmas lilies - we arrived home late after spending Xmas day with family & spotted a pretty new bloom.
Had to wait until it was light today to get pics.
Pretty colours & now I am even more excited to see what the rest are like :)

Anthony, I am going to tip all my bulbs out of their pots and store in the shed until planting time.
Hope this is the right thing to do , as I dont want them cooking in the pots during any more heat.

No Anthony, I will wait until then. I know all the stems have to dry up first.
I have them in shade, but it can get hot later in the year here, so thought I'd better check with you.

Anthony, thank you for sharing these. I always wonder what specifically makes a champion flower, as opposed to a beautiful flower. Would love a line about why this one or that one came first over others seemingly as beautiful. Only if you have time, of course.

I had a couple of nibblers there in the open entries, with 2 blooms to a stem, but i ''nailed it''

I was reading advice that said not to grow tiger lilies with other lily varieties.
Is it too great a risk to have them both in the same garden?
Does anyone grow them both together?
I need to know whether I should leave the ones I have or pull them out, I would hate for the tigers to spread any nasty diseases to my other lilies.
Cheers - Teresa

the person who wrote about it referred to tiger lilies as the 'typhoid Mary' of the lily world.
they can harbour a virus without ill effect but if a sap sucker travels from them to a different lily the disease will hit hard.
However this was over seas & I think he specialised in species liliums.
Maybe it isn't such a threat to gardeners like us?

Teresa, Anthony told me not to plant them amongst other Liliums but not because of disease...but because they are so promiscuous...and they gradually out breed the rest...mine are all over the place. But mostly in pots.
Here is my last one for the summer, except for my favourite white which came out this morning...too windy to take a pic...

In the lily breeds, there are a few very strong species.. Lancifolium [tiger lily],.,.Flaviflorum[sometimes called the 'yellow tiger'] .but much more worthy than that,.,. and Henryi[absolutely bulletproof],to name a few,.,...all of these are able to harbour a myriad of diseases and show no effects,.,.but.. should they breed ,.,.they soon wipe out any of the weaker species[as a lot of species are very susceptible to disease[ie;lilium candidum] and revert back to the original species,..SO, everyone was correct in comments..,Also remember, every lily you have in your garden,comes from a species[in some way],.,.so if you can see any sick looking blooms or stems ,..,put the whole lot[pot included] in the bin!!

Thanks Anthony. I knew you would have a good answer for us.
Most of my Tigers are along the veranda but some are next to the other liliums. They are in the ground and under a large shrub so moving them is impossible, I have found that over a few years, the asiatics I planted in the ground have outgrown the close Tigers so maybe not a great problem for me.

hmm - well I plan on dead heading all the lilies, not going to try for seed so it might be ok.
i think I will move the tigers that are close to the other lilies just to be on the safe side.
I am sure I can find a home for them else where.
either that or shift the other lilies to a new home - i am tempted to shift the daffs & iris from their spot in the sun & give that bed to lilies and a few friendly ground covers like nemesia & alyssum.
Food for thought...

Good idea Teresa. Better to be safe than sorry. I only have some of the asiatics in the ground as I moved them from the back paddock garden. All my other liliums are in pots so I can move them elsewhere. They will all be going in the shadehouse for the winter soon.

I was hoping that no one would ask, Colleen...Lol
I will go and find the ticket if I can...I have it somewhere...I bought it on eBay..

Here it is...Lilium speciosum Album ...I had to look at my eBay purchases..glad that you asked because I was too lazy to look for it before..
It has made an extra bulb since I bought it, in 2010 but it seems to be slow...

Anthony, how is yours going?
I might look for some more bulbs, now that I've smelt the perfume...it's like my Leucocorums, only stronger because it is much larger...Ray reckons it's caramel, I'm sticking to honey/chocolate...pretty close, don't you think...

Sigh, so lovely the lilies. Dianne, that tiger lily is scrumptious. I wish I had soil here so I could grow even just a few. I love the one that smells like honey/choc but looks like minted icecream.

Ive just heard on ATP, that the biggest supplier of bulbs to the US,[Van Bortigon]since the 50's has gone down the gurgler!!with a lot of 'mum n dad' money[$100-200 bulb orders]taken with them,.,.and the major cause has been the poor quality supply /service, dating back 30+ years,..very sad!!!!-It concerns me that a few of our bulb suppliers here[in Australia] are heading in the same direction[Absolute crap/she'll be right , supply and service][good seasonal employees are hard to find] was one excuse!!-Anthony has experienced a 'bad service' day, which has'nt helped!!
