Note:
Some catalogues/vendors describe 'White Henryi'as synonymous with 'Lady Alice' and/or 'Bright Star,' but the three plants, although similar, are all, in fact, different hybrids with different histories. (And each have their own listing in the official Lily Registers).

One of my favorite lilies, the parentage is L. henryi X L. leucanthum var. centifolium. Disease resistant, I highly recommend this cultivar.
