The Oriental lilies take a bit longer to force. They are also a lot shorter and we are not having the problem with stretch as much. This might actually be a better choice for northern growers. To achive really high quality lilies they should probably recieve supplemental light to increase intensity. High light, cool temperatures and low water are key to quality with lilies.
