Tony, parryi normally has a long throat and more of a bell shape.  Is it possible that your plant is a hybrid?

I see what you mean.

My plant came from a commercial source in the UK and there is every chance that it is a hybrid. Although it is very beautiful this is disappointing. It is also bulking up very quickly which is a bit suspicious.

If it is very vigorous, it may be a hybrid with pardalinum.

A very nice form of the variety, Michael, and well grown, too.

I'm really looking forward to Gene's article...

Increasing in bud count every year, but not getting any taller:
Lilium rosthornii
       

It has proven to be its regular habit, year after year, for this plant to abruptly change leaf size as it makes a flower stalk.  The phenomenon can be seen in the above photo and the one below.  Is this normal for the species?  I only have one mature clone of the species, so I can't tell.

My rosthornii lilies show the same phenomenon, Rick. As I am not at home I only have looked at old pics though. I'll take a look when I get home soon!
