BlazenMarine(8)June 11, 2014

planted last summer. lost the marker and can't remember what it is called or what kind it is? there is one that looks similar that i have seen.... possibly the Prunotto Asiatic Lily... but again, not sure.

anyone know?

There were descriptions of the leaves and stalks that can help decide, but another way I have read about is the color. Asiatics are usually one solid color only and Orientals tend to (or maybe always do) have a mixed coloring.

The single coloration notwithstanding - the easiest distinguishing difference in Asiatic vs. Oriental lilies is the leafing.

On the Asiatics there are lots of slender leaves whirling/ bristling up the stalk. Orientals have fewer larger leaves which are more stem hugging.

There shouldn't be too much questioning that the lily in the OP's picture is an Asiatic.
