The Struwwelpeter lily

This is the (or one of the) double flowered form of tiger lily. The first time I saw this many years ago I was immediately reminded of Der Struwwelpeter.

The ones I grew in the past rarely opened well, but the ones I have now open into cleanly demarcated tepals.

I've chosen this one to be  symbolic of this year's lily season which was, in a word, a mess.
