down, Ireland Ie

I grew this from scales(?)...taken from one of my lily bulbs about 3-4 years ago....Every spring the leaves grew like the long ones in the flowers, which was to be expected...This year though, can you see the new central leaves, more like lily leaves...What, if anything, does this mean?...thanks...:>)

On plant Lilium
