I've posted an image of Lilium 'Preston Yellow' to the wiki. Take a look at: http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… The name I've used for this lily is the one under which I received it many years ago, and it is the name used by those few of us who grow this old cultivar. Isabella Preston was a Canadian lily hybridizer active before the Second World War. She is best remembered for a series of Asiatic hybrids which came to be known as the Stenographer Hybrids; these were widely grown and praised in the 1950s. The history of Preston Yellow is more obscure. George Slate, writing decades ago in the Yearbook of the North American Lily Society, mentioned a yellow flowered hybrid from Miss Preston; I'm assuming that that plant and my 'Preston Yellow' are the same. This plant is presumably a hybrid of Lilium hansonii: 'Preston Yellow' and Lilium hansonii are superficially similar. 'Preston Yellow' does well in my Maryland garden - something I wish I could say for most martagon lilies.
