This new Lily already noted in our magazine, is thus referred to by Max Licht-lin in the Garden, as appearing at Baden-Baden: "Lilium Parryi is not, I consider, the showiest of American Lilies, but it is one of the most elegant. Here it has seven flowers on astern 5 feet in height; their color is a deep citron-yellow, with a few crimson spots; they stand out horizontally, and are tubiform and about 4 inches in length; the pollen is reddish brown. Mine is the best variety. Some of them appear to be much paler and not so large flowered. It is a very elegant and graceful Lily".
