An extremely elegant oriental lily is the Muscadet lily, Lilium 'Muscadet'. It bears pink or white flowers. The huge flower petals with ruffled edges are speckled with rose-red spots and touched with a blush of palest pink down the center of each petal. Its stamens are red.
The flowers are strongly fragrant and have distinctive hairs at the base of the tepals (petals).
These gorgeous Muscadet lilies are in containers, I took the photos at the flower center, for two days.
Some stamens are already removed, probably because of the colorful pollen that stains everything. I find interesting that it has more than one stigna, (those stick-like parts in the middle).
Oriental lily "Muscadet" blooms in late summer and it is a treat to have these gorgeous lilies in my home, in early October.
All the flowers you see in this last picture are from one plant, in a container.
