Late last fall when garden centers were getting rid of plants from their inventory, I, on a whim, bought five plants with a tag that said 'Lily.' I had no idea the variety, color, or type. These were my first 'real' Lilies (Lilium) to purchase, so I admit I didn't know an Asiatic from an Oriental or all the others. I suspect though this is an Asiatic, from looking at images on the web. Regardless, I couldn't be more pleased with the bloom.
Now, for those of you who feel bad for never planting your plant purchases, you are not alone. All five plants have still not been planted and are blooming in their little plastic pots. To be honest, I completely forgot I had them, and found them lying in one of the beds in the winter. I figured they were dead. As you can see, they are not.
