Help identifying a Lily (pics)

Hello!
I've been growing this lily for several years, and I've called it a Leopard and a Turk's cap at different times. I thought this should be the year when I get a proper ID, and figured you would provide some expert help. Bought it at a local nursery, here in northern California. L. superbum has been suggested, but for some reason I've found it difficult to find images showing the leaves.

It looks to me like lilium lancifolium, Tiger Lily.

It's the tiger lily.

Which should be called a leopard lily, IMO :)
