Excellent result from your hard work and passion. What difference found between yellow flowers of this year and last year plants. This year lilium may also come from same source in LA, yellow (Pavia) and orange color and oriental in white (crystal blanka) and pink (Marlon). My yellow LA (Pavia) will bloom tomorrow (exact 85 days as mention by various suppliers) and Orientals are on buds yet far away to bloom.
LA is more heat tolerant and less winter required than Asiatic.
Can we cross Asiatics to Easter lily or vice versa? Easter lily not produced pods may cross with Asiatics may produced some hybrids that will maintenance free naturalized in Lahore.

Above pink flower is from last year, Oriental Star Gazer? If you lose this year Oriental (Marlon or Casablanca) lilies , You can get or I can arrange these plants at visible buds from Sky seeds in 5 inch pots.
