Does anybody know what Lilies these are?

  • Does anybody know what Lilies these are?

They came from a house my in-laws bought and I would like to get some more. They are quite tall, about 3ft or more.
Thank you.

    They look like either Asiatic Lilies, or, more likely, Oriental or Stargazer Lilies. If you type the phrase "stargazer lilies white" into google, then click on the "images" tab, you can look down the page and see if you can find the closest one to the ones in the photo.

    Hi Gemma,
    I wonder if your lilies are called Muscadet – they are quite distinctive with lots of brown/red freckles and they often have those frilly look petals. They are oriental lilies with a nice scent. If you Google Lilium ‘Muscadet’ you can compare with yours.

    You also have another type of lilies among these, an oriental trumpet lily sticking out quite far down. Your photo is not clear enough for me to see what it is.
    If you want more lilies you can buy bulbs from most nurseries or better; from specialist lily nurseries. Oriental lilies come in all sizes from less than 2ft to more than 7ft and they all smell wonderful.

    Gemma, if you want to learn a bit more about Lilies, check out the Plant Names page - if you click on Grower Tips at the top of this page, and then select Plant Names from the black bar: scroll down to "What is a Lily?" and click on it.

    Hi. Thank you Helen and Rachel. Yes I did notice that little different Lily!

    These Lilies where left at a house that my Mother in law bought. There were all these pots that looked like they just contained earth, as this was November time. I said I had a feeling something would be in them. She didn't want them and was going to chuck them out! I rescued them and look how beautiful they were. I actually don't have them any more. I can't even remember what happened with them in the end. I like to move plants around a bit too much sometimes. I really would like to get some more.
    I will definitely have a read of "What is a Lily" too. Thanks again, much appreciated.
