ASIATIC UPFACING HYBRID LILY, CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN, GLENCOE, ILLINOIS, APRIL 4, 2010
Tamron SP AF 90mm DI Macro
1/180 sec. f9.5
It looks like a tulip while it's opening, but when the petals of the Asiatic Upfacing Hybrid Lily are fully extended, it's an utterly different bloom. This one is called the "Aladdin's Sun" variety, and it's an early spring feature at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
