The flower on my”Lilium hansonii” is fallen. I think it has no smell but I am not sure. The stem is 60 cm. long and the leaves are 8 cm. long and ½ cm. broad. The flower came in the top of the stem and got no stalk as the flower on L. davidii.
The stem on my L. concolor are 80 cm. and the leaves are 5 cm. long and less than ½ cm. broad. It looks like my L. davidii v. willmottiae, who has black stems, but if that species also can have green stems as Göte tolls I am quite sure it is L. davidii v. willmottiae

A name here would make me happy  ;)

I mean L. lankongense is more pink than Lilium duchartrei there are nearly white. I put a picture of my Lilium lankongense, so Magnar I think also your lily is Lilium lankongense.

I mean it looks like Lilium lijinganense. Look the answer from Susan and Göte on my searching of Lilium.

Is it Chinese? If not, it could be L. pyrenaicum or one of the closely related species (L. ciliatum etc.).

I really don't know where this lily came from. It might very well have come from China.  The flowers are much bigger than on L. pyrenaicum, I would say about twice as big. I can see it looks much like Lilium lijinganense, although the flower in the pic shown in the other thread is not quite like my plant. So at least I can call it Lilium aff. lijinganense.

I'd plump for ciliatum, since this can have flowers about twice the size of pyrenaicum. There's a good comparative chart of this group's characteristics at Markus Hohenegger's site (http://www.the-genus-lilium.com/subsection3b.htm).

The leaves are like - but not QUITE like - L. pyrenaicum and its flowers reflex markedly. I think the petals are narrower too, and if straightened out would be longer.

After I have seen the leaves I can say it is not Lilium lijinganense. For me it looks more like Lilium pyreanaicum, but it is not coming from China. The leaves on Lilium ciliatum got small hair. It can also be a yellow form of L. carniolicum, but the early leaves on L. carniolicum also got small hair. My guess is; a young plant of Lilium pyreanaicum. Have it a powerful smell?

The flowers are gone now so I can't say if they have a smell or not. May be L. pyrenaica varies in flower size, cause I see that the leaves are much like my other L. pyrenaica.

Thanks everybody.

Kalle,
In this picture your "hansonii" looks even more as one that I keyed out as davidii some years ago.
If there is only one flower we usually cannot see any pedicel so I would not put too much stress on that feature.
I think that you will see proper davidii pedicels next year when it is stronger (I hope  :) )

I do not think that it is lijiangense.
Lijiangense has less dense leaves and a typical near-black line in the inner centre of al tepals.
It also has long drooping pedicels.
The flowers are wider with more recurved tepals.
I think that it must be something similar to pyrenaicum but it is not one that I have seen.
