Double Oriental Lily Mixture?????

Does anyone have any idea what lilies are on this picture?

As far as I know, there was only one double Oriental Lily so far - Miss Lucy. Am I wrong?

This is a mixture of varieties being developed. 'Miss Lucy' is the first named selection of these double flowered Oriental Lilies.

Really fascinating, but I've had trouble getting 'Miss Lucy' to open well in my garden. =(

I hope these other seedlings show promise and better garden worthiness.

Cheers,

RIz

Thanks, Riz.
I was hoping for your and other experts' replies. I remember your post about 'Miss Lucy'. My 'Miss Lucy' did not bloom last season because the bulbs I recieved from Van Bourgondien were tiny, so I cannot evaluate its perfomance. I saw different colored double lilies on the North American Lily Society site (here) marked as seedlings. They look amazing. But if they did not open well...
Did anyone else have 'Miss Lucy' blooming? How was it?

Riz, can you please tell me about your 'Midnight Star'? It is still very expensive and it looks remarkably similar to the common 'Dizzy' on pictures. Is it worth the money?

Thank you.

I'll make a separate post on 'Midnight Star'.

Cheers,
