Looking for a soft yellow early season lily

linnea56(z5 IL)August 5, 2008

I would like a recommendation for a soft pastel yellow, preferably asiatic (or something else blooming at the same time) with few or no spots. I bought some last year that were supposed to be Kansas but turned out to be an electric screaming yellow. I will have to move those but the niche still needs filling: my garden at that time of year seems to be all soft pinks, peaches, and blues.

Later in the season I have an Orienpet, Honeymoon, which is the ideal color. So something of similar color but earlier blooming would be great. Thanks!

It would be also great to have an oriental yellow, something really late for the end of the season but I have not been able to find any. It seems like most are in the same color spectrum, which I already have, pink or hot pink plus white.

The Lily Garden has an Asiatic called "Caress" which might fit what you are looking for - I don't have it myself, so can say for sure how true the color is. It's the last one on the page below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Caress Lily
