In response to my "tall lilies" post I received a private response suggesting that I send some bulbs to Dell for the BX. 
What a great idea!
However, there is a catch. These huge lilies do not offset freely. Unlike the commonly grown Asiatic hybrid lilies which produce abundant offsets yearly, you'll be lucky to get one per year with these big ones. Typically they just get bigger and bigger year by year - and then split into two bulbs which produce somewhat shorter stems for a year or two. 
I would if I could. 
The three I mentioned are readily available and reasonably priced - try The Lily Garden (originators of 'Dunyazade'): http://thelilygarden.com/pages_lilies/…
