Unidentified new bloom

Hello all,

I have new wonderful bloom but it's a mislabel. I received the bulb as a replacement for a Nagano, and the replacement is not near the proper one. But the problem now is I am really confused, as you can see the flower has a wonderful salmon orange colour but the flowers are nodding, very much. And nothing comes to my mind what it might be, it's not Rilona although coloration seems a bit similar. Maybe Desire? Emaryllis pictures show a similar flower which also nods.

I found a link for someone who has a bloom very similar to yours... They are calling it Orange Sovereign, but I thought that name was linked with a darker orange bloom. If you do a Google search, you'll find those darker blooms. This could be a sport...

I also found Orange Dream and Orange Cream blooms that look similar to your bloom in shape and size.

I hope you can find the ID...I really like it!

Rob, And why don't you think it could be Rilona? Even though I don't have one if you google Rilona, I think it fits the bill..only my opinion of course but it's a very pretty flower anyway and I'm sure you're happy with it, I would be! I have Desire, Orange Sovereign and Naranja and it's none of those...

Shape is a bit different, but since Donna suggested it...I agree it looks like Rilona!

RE: Unidentified new bloom

Hm... but then I am confused why the flowers are nodding so heavily
