Latvia - Netty's Pride Identical?

rosalinda_gwJuly 20, 2008

Hi Folks,

This year I grew some Latvia Lilies and some Netty's Pride lilies and I was surprised to see that they are identical - size, shape, color. I though the Latvias were supposed to be green with dark centers and the Netty's Pride white with dark centers, but they are all white with dark centers. They are spectacular, but if I had known they were the same, I would have not bought them both. Does anyone know if they are the same variety under different names?

Thanks,

Rosalinda

I don't know about Netty's Pride, but my Latvia is yellow with dark centers and dark freckles into the yellow. I will be interested to see what others have.

No, they are not the same...

Here's how mine look like.

Wow Crazy Gardener, those Latvias are BEAUTIFUL! I sure wish I had some, but ALL mine so far look just like picture number 2 - definitely all Netty's Pride. Now the Netty's Pride are also great, and they fit wonderfully in my black and white garden, but I was hoping to put the Latvia's in my new "Citrus" garden (orange, lemon, lime), so the rest of the Netty's Pride will have to join the others in the B&W garden.

I bought 2 bags (6 bulbs total) of the Latvia's from Van Bourgondien, and so far the three that have opened are identical to the Netty's Pride, so I assume they must be the same, but maybe I will get lucky and have SOME of them actually turn out to be Latvia.

Thanks for your help, everyone - much appreciated!
