Double lily with stamen

This question was asked by

I purchased the above lilies together with My Wedding last year and have just had my first bloom from Empress ( My Wedding still to flower).
I notice that whilst it appears true to picture & is a double it has pollen stamens.
Is this normal or have I received the wrong bulbs.

Hi Alan

Yes, this is completely normal for the stamen to still present themselves because of climate factors. This can occur when the lilies get stressed because of extreme heat, which is most likely from the weather we experienced back in June.
