A garden with out a Lily is just plain silly.
This is the room where most of our Lilies reside. We have Day Lilies. Asiatics Lilies, and an Easter Lily. I will not be able to tell you the names of all the lilies. I buy on line from Break, Smoley's day lily farm, and some were gifts from Jackson and Perkins. I buy Asiatic Lilies in the fall they ship early spring. There are early, mid, and late. Let the show begin.
This is a short lily and the very first to bloom. You need to know if they are early, mid, or late. This is an Asiatic lily. Most have more than one bloom. After they bloom cut back their stems, they do not look bad in the bed. I took this picture on May 2, 2013.
This one is planted in front of the day lilies, an early one, not quiet knee high. This was my first lily to buy in May, 2007. I was in Wal-Mart around Mother's Day, and they had a big display of Asiatic lilies. Yellow and pink are my favorite colors. This picture was taken May, 10, 2013. Multiplies well, divide in October or November. We divided this in 2011 had enough to plant in two places in this room and in front of Carrel's bed, He got most of them.
I love my roses, however a garden should be more than roses. I planted my Asiatic Lilies in the middle of my rose beds. I had a hard time conversing Carrel to plant more than roses. He never listens to me, and I am always right Men!!! Here is a picture of his rose bed now. Finally!! I will do a blog page on his bed.
This one being pink is one of my favorites.
Debbie gave me this 2009 I love it.
I have one more Asiatic yellow lily I will show it with the day lilies. It is a late bloomer.
I hope you have enjoyed my page about Lilies. You need all kind of flower in you garden. You will need flowers that bloom at different times. Thank you for watching our garden bloom and grow. Happy gardening to you from Carrel and I, Juanita.
