Hi all, could anyone tell me if this is a lily and what type? I have vague recollections of buying a lily corm but don't recall the type. The leaves look like lily, but the buds don't. Help!




Definately a Lily, looks like he needs staking. Not sure on variety. I have one or two that I was given. It's great to see what colours turn up.

The leaves are like a lily . You'll find out when the buds open.

are the buds carried on the top? and are they small? it might be a Martagon...or Turk's Cap?

Your right Lori, it's a Turk's Cap Lily I remember buying it now! Many thanks for that and thanks to all, I've staked it now Trees and things, and I think it may be a dusky pink colour with the spots, we shall see.
Thanks once again.
