A lily very similar to L. henryi, slightly lighter in colour and much taller (about 6ft). Joe Hoell crossed L. henryi with an oriental called 'Valley Sundust.' Early healthy stems were known to reach 8ft and to carry as many as 30 flowers. Was used in the breeding of 'Golden Beauty' by Joe Hoell.

A massive (8" bloom) oriental lily that oozes from the petals and very extrusive pinky/red papillae. Emits a massive amount of scent. Blooms are way too heavy for the stem.. 'I really like it'

This martagon hybrid lily is unique in that it opens pink and after a few days it turns cream colored.

Talking about Lily (Lilium 'Harlequin Hybrids'), gwhizz wrote:

According to the book "Lilies," by Jefferson- Brown and Howland: "The Harlequin Strain is reported to have been bred by De Graff by mating L. cernuum with mid century kinds. They were marketed as a mixed range with blush pink, rose, cream, yellow, orange, and red represented. They do have narrower foliage, but are more vigorous than L. cernuum. They faced outwards and some are still marketed today, more than fifty years after introduction, a fair testimony to their vigour''.. but later the quote is contradicted on page 112 as downfacing.

Observations and experiences with growing Boogie Woogie.

I purchased 12 Boogie Woogie bulbs around 2007 and planted them in 3 different garden settings: one in full, full bright sun, one with dappled canopy shade after 1PM, and one with dappled shade on and off all day. These three garden settings, coupled with a variety of weather conditions over the years, have produced a really wide spread of coloring, ranging from all yellow/gold to yellow/cream with some coloring on the reverse to light cream with darker color reverse accompanied by a pink edge on the face. So, when I look at the spread of color in the database, I've seen them all right here in my own gardens over the years. And mine were all produced by the same batch of bulbs from the same source.

I've found that Boogie Woogie needs a lot of bright light/sunlight from the moment the buds appear in order to develop good color even on the reverse, so those grown in mostly dappled shade looked yellow--much more yellow than cream and were absent entirely of any pink, even on the reverse. Those grown in full, full sun always produced the deepest color reverses, with the best rose edge developing only if I had cool nights for a spell just before the buds opened. And then those flowers would be more cream on the face too. So when you look at all of those in the data base, it's a pretty good indication of what happens to Boogie Woogie under different growing conditions. Even in the same garden, I've seen differences from year to year! I guess we could call it: 'The Many Faces of Boogie Woogie'
