I would appreciate some help with ID my lilies if possible.
I will thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

How along have you had this martagon, and any idea where it came from? The only possibility I can come up with is Arabian Night. Claude Shride doesn't have that yellow center.

How tall is the buff lily?

I will get back to you on the height of the buff lily, raining too hard today in western MA.
Martagon lily, I've never purchased Arabian Night. I did purchase Lilium dalhansonii in 2010. Which never bloomed-do you think that this lily could possibly be it. I purchased 3 blubs and now I have 3 of these lilies. I never saw any evidence in this spot of the garden, of any lily before. I'm trying to keep better records of where I plant things. I do appreciate your help in ID(ing) these lilies

There you go! It's not uncommon for marty's to sulk and make an appearence in year 2. I have three doing just that this year.

As for your 'gift lily', you'll probably never find a name, so give it one of your own and enjoy. We all have lots of NOIDs and love them just the same. :)
