Nice. And how "tiny" is it?

Another couple open now, 'Yeti' a low growing Asiatic Hybrid,
and an unknown LA (longiflorum-asiatic) Hybrid
which was labeled as 'Lipstick' another Asiatic,
New to our garden is a "bonus" bulb which was sent by Adrian from Coal Creek Bulb Farm with my order earlier in the year. He told me that he didn't know what it would be himself! It's obvious a Longiflorum- Asiatic Hybrid, any suggestions to the name?
I cannot grow this lily! This is a clump of Madonna Lilies, Lilium candidum growing in the garden at work which has been untended as far as I know for the last few months but has come up into glorious flower despite (or maybe because of) the neglect!
I should add that I've tried growing Lilium candidum several times from bulbs in various positions in the garden with soil amendments including lime, ash and charcoal and still the plants just dwindled away. After seeing these doing so well I'll give them another go! Maybe I can get these to set seed?
The one time I tried a Madonna lily bulb, I knew it wasn't in the best place. I hoped it might adapt, but I didn't expect it to dwindle so quickly.
Can't get the seed to germinate, but I've only tried once.... so far.
Here's an updated pic of the pink LA hybrid which is possibly 'Brindisi'
This is the latest Asiatic lilium to flower, 'Tiger Play'
Royal Trinity is another LA hybrid; it's done very well for us and we now have it in a few places in the "perennial border";
it's a medium height, soft orange/apricot,
New this season for us is the Asiatic Lilium 'Red Velvet'
