Named for my home town in northern Alberta, this is quite a tall AND unique lily for the prairie garden. Fred Fellner was dabbling with pollen from Baby Pink Belles in his hybridizing program the year this lily was first formed, and that is obvious in the flower form which has substantial petal thickness on downfacing blooms with very little recurve to the petals.
A smattering of fine red-purple spots is found circling the throat which has a brush of faint red under the spots. The flower is a pale melon orange shading to deeper orange in the middle with brilliant orange pollen. They may fade to white or cream after some time in high heat leaving a faint orange shade about where the spots end. Stems top out at 1.45 M with narrow foliage and it tends to fasciate however not to the point of flower deformity or splitting, only visible due to the flat stems. I have counted up to 36 flowers per stem although the average is 24; typically begins blooming end of July - earliest recorded was July 22.
