Cross-Pollinated Asiatic Lily - Part 2

the second cross-pollinated lily opened today.

The petals are narrower and a bit longer. What is also interesting is that this has dark red in the throat as well as faint veins of the same color.

Cross-Pollinated Asiatic Lily

Do you remember when I was surprised that a couple pods took back in 2011 and how surprised I was when seedlings were growing in 2012? Only two of them returned this year.

So what does a white asiatic lily mother and an unknown father create?

I couldn't believe it. It is so different! I love how the yellow is displayed. It's so cool.

The second plant's flower bud indicates that it probably will look just like its sibling.
