Any suggestions where I can buy Lily bulbs now?

We just got title to our new home and I would've liked to have had some some 'Orania' Orienpet lilies this year. I meant to order them from Brent & Becky's but they aren't shipping anymore this season. I guess by the time everything settled down in my life and I wanted to turn my attention to my new garden, it was too late for me! I also wanted some 'Muscadet' bulbs.

If no one has any suggestions, how about to those of you growing these varieties, please post pics of them on the gallery side of this forum? At least I can enjoy them vicariously through you guys. Thanks.

A reputable seller will not sell Lilies at this time of the year. Many sellers (including Brent & Becky's) started selling bulbs for the fall shipment. You can buy potted Lilies at your local garden centers though.
As for pictures, it is too early for them to bloom. Maybe, someone can post pictures of the previous years' blooms.

Alina is right that it is late to plant lily bulbs. However, it will soon be the perfect time to buy potted lilies. Check your local nurseries for their selection. You probably won't be able to find Orania, but Muscadet should be available. I've seen them at Lowe's and Home Depot stores in the past.

Right now most of the big box stores have potted LA's (Longiflorum - Asiatics) for sale. Their orientals should come out soon, if they aren't out already.
