Lilies for fragrance or Not!

I was hoping to purchase some lovely scented oriental or asiatic lilies to flank the back yard patio.

Go figure, I found a most lovely white lily only to find that this lily will not produce any scent.  The Lily Asiatic ‘Navona’ is not fragrant, and requires 12 – 18″ between bulbs.  My planting of these 3″ apart will not work.  I have yet to fix this mistake.  I will see how they proceed.

So will be digging these up tomorrow, and trying to find more fragrant oriental lilies — perhaps going with ‘Stargazer’ again.   The one in near complete shade has done well for two years.
