Is the Landini Lily named after the 14th Century Composer, Francesco Landini? What a beautiful and amazingly exotic flower. It looks so tropical that that name surprised me. Any info on how this unique Asiatic Lily got its name would be delightful to know!

I don't know, but Vletter & den Haan are the breeders; perhaps they might tell you.
