Its always lovely to guess the plant, especially when you inherit one! Good luck.

Mine still have their leave on too, though they're a bit straggly.

my neighbour, who has a lovely lily clump in her garden tells me they can be hard to grow, especially from bulb (easier to establish in the green).

Also, I stuck mine in soil that wasn't well drained, so had to move them, which they hated! They also like ericacious soil, another thing I didn't know and won't always flower well without.

Sounds just like mine - yello bottom half. But my flower spikes thankfully don't look limp.

i wondered if it just went through a less attractive leaf phase midsummer perhaps...

Thanks for replying - hope yours survives.

My Pure Abundance rise throws out a really long stem sometimes. I just leave it to do its own thing and flower, to be honest, though I can see that the asymmetry of onLY one long stem may not please everyone!

the other stems on yours look nice and healthy though.

I do cut mine right back once flowering has finished and it always produces new, strong stalks and more flowers.
