Lily Time

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 picture was taken on May, 13, 2013.  Still blooming.

   I bought this lily in 2009.  When you buy from Breck they send  three lilies to a pack.  I planted these in my orange rose bed.  They multiplied quickly.   We divided them in 20011.  We will have to divide some of these again in the fall.   Next blog will be Carrel,s yard.

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.                                                  










  1. I have a silly garden. No lilies. :-)
    Do they need a lot of water. They look so exotic I don't know if I'd get them to grow that well, but they sure are beautiful.

  2. They need no more water than anything else. So easy. Next I will show my Day Lilies they grow any where. There are so many pretty ones. Some bloom from May until frost.. So easy..You need them along your fence. Thank you. You always read my blog and leave a message.

  3. I love your lilies. I also love the pots. Don't know if I like the blue or lavender one best.

  4. Thank you I like the lavender and pink best Carrel likes the blue. Blue is Carrel's favorite color.
