Steve, your blooms are gorgeous. I don't have any yellows, unfortunately. GH wild just sent their early summer sale catalog. I'm trying to be good and not order anything. Let's see how long I can last. LOL. Linett, your vase of blooms is also pretty. I have Conca d' Or planted this spring, with one of the plant tops being nipped by my free range bunnies. I've put down Repell All, and maybe I'll see some blooms this summer.

I agree Deb. Most of my lilies are just growing taller and taller. Only a few with buds. Now that it has stopped raining and gotten so warm, those lilies are just soaking it in, daring us to watch.

I feel it in my veins. Lilies in the northeast will soon be smiling back at us. My appetite is whetted looking at all the gorgeous southern blooms.

The baps are in major bud. I can see the signs of blueness but they have not opened yet. It's weird - my regales, which had declined, are doubled. But Casablanca, which I have had for over ten years, really diminished. But many of the lilies I put in two years ago are doing beautifully.

I put in lots of miniature daffs around my lilies two years ago, and it has really worked. I have lilies all over the place. My rabbit victims are a few Anastasia, but happily they are so robust that I still have at least 15 - from an additional three, plus those I gave away.

I will definitely post!

Steve, before you sign papers to list and sell your property, have the realter put a statement in saying that you can take your flowers any time you wish in the next 6 months.
That is what we did when we sold our farm. I was not going to leave any of my flowers, but did leave a start of each which they then mowed off!!
After putting up a stink about our statement that the attorney put in the sales agreement.

Cem, I have the same problem you do. Catalogs show up and become weak - really quickly. I need to hold out for when I move but like you will probably cave in at some point. Van Engelen's and John Scheeper's catalogs arrived and they are pretty good sources for buyng lily color en masse at low prices, For the cooler varieties I go to B&D (and formerly Buggy - sniff) as well as Lily Garden but of course they are much more expensive. OHG has a few cool ones but does not carry a huge number of lilies.

Thanks, Steve. I've become addicted to getting Daylilies this year. Been ordering the bright reds and white-edged purples. So many I'm going to have to dig another chunk of yard up for another bed. (Like THAT breaks my heart. LOL)

NOID yellow Lily. Clearance pots from box store a few years ago. They smell wonderful, come back every year without complaint, and cheerfully multiply-even in a very harsh area of the yard. Bought more bulbs this year. Elodie, Conca d'or, and Casa Blanca. Think I need to move them to sunnier spots, but will see.

Lily_love, what a great thread.

And try this for voles. I was using Volblok/Permatil but I found something better. Voles stay away from daffodils, because they can sniff them out and they are poisonous. I started adding miniature tulips (W.P Milner is good and cheap) to my lily beds and the damage stopped cold. It also seems to work on rabbits. And it works as long as the bulbs are there. I once lost 100 lily bulbs to voles. Last year I lost - NONE!

WP Milner does not leave big hulking foliage everywhere either. And it fades quickly.

Oh Donna, many thanks. It's time for me to bring back some daffodils to the garden. miniature tulips? Where is the source for W.P. Milner? I irrigated the garden yesterday. This culprit was probably got disoriented by the soaking irrigation. It came out of hiding and running in circle on the hot pavement yesterday. Who's responsible for my missing 'Arabian' red, 'Casa Blanca' many a 'Star Gazers' and other treasured lilies.

I got them from two sources, and could never tell the difference between them. Brent and Becky's Bulbs, and McClure and Zimmerman. McClure and Zimmerman has so so reviews on DG but I order from them every year and I have always been happy. But B&B is an ace supplier and they are actually cheaper.

Lilylove, thanks so much for the link...what pretty garden shots and love your perennial garden.

Debra, your yellow NOID is beautiful. Looks like an LA lily? Hard to tell by looking at it - is it fragrant? Conca d'Or is a great lily and being a strong, heat-resistant OT is good in our climate. Casablanca, that one I did not have such good luck with. Did OK the first year then declined. Let me know how yours fares!

I really like how the daylilies fill in the gaps...in fact they're dominating the garden scene right now. I am having one the the best daylily seasons I have ever had. If only ya didn't have to deadhead every day for them to not look scraggly :-( Funny - Maxine hates daylilies and Rita (NY) hates peonies. LOL...I cannot imagine a garden without either.

Donna, have to agree with you on OHG. I love buying from them and their service and customer focus are second to none, but they're just not a realistic source for significant numbers of bulbs for many people due to their prices. I love their hyacinths though and they have many daff varieties well suited to many in the deep south, probably a better selection in that regard than anyone...and their stuff has all done well for me.

Silk Road just opening, with lots of brown pollen all over it. One of the finest OT's and one of the best for the south in the lily genus, no contest. I have a bunch of these and they seem to ciome back strongly every year. Temps in high 90's every day this week and not much heat stress apparent on this one.

Jmorth, your lily fields vista is incredibly beautiful. What a lovely yard you have, and hpw gorgeously laid out. I love the way you work with intense colors. I never really figured out how to do that.

Steve, I got Silk Road after seeing it in your yard. That lily is outrageous. I dug one up to put in a pot when it was one foot tall. I threw it in the trunk of my car in some soil overnight. I potted it in one of my rose pots. It shot up another foot within two days. And I dug it up because somehow it had pushed itself to the surface of the soil. You could just look down and see the yellowness of the bulb on the ground. Almost scary. I'm surprised that it didn't reach up and grab me.

And I agree with you that OHG hyacinths are unbeatable. I have bought all of his doubles in the past. And he's my source for daffodils, because they multiplied so fast (5 Mount Hoods became 30 in about three years.. And his peonies are VERY well priced.

And yes, Lovemyhouse! Grass simply represents another opportunity to extend the beds. I always said, look! No need to mow it!

Oh, thank you ge, I love martagons. I ordered some years ago from OHG, a trio in the red and in the white. They are very expensive, but Scott managed to sell out the white. So I got the others, and after waiting for the three years or so to settle in they bloomed for two years until my husband trampled them awhile doing a project. They never came back, so it's so nice to see yours.

Sorry about the loss.
So glad I live alone at times. I am the only boob who steps on things.
Its the 3rd year for mine. I also have Backhouse which made a nice showing last year.
This is the first year I have seen more than 1 stalk per bulb..

Ge, your martagon is impressive. I have never tried them before. Oh I think I got one at the IA roundup in a trade but it grew the first season and never came back. jmorth, love the orange lily "Good Night" - i have that one too...Buggy Crazy? Still amazes me how early you get yours to bloom relative to others in your climate.

Donna, sorry about yours being crushed :-( Reason #39, LOL - I think you know what I mean

Here is part of my front garden today. Been pulling a lot of the dying spring bulb foliage and it is looking better. Heat is horrible here, mid-90's, should be in high 80's this time of year.

Hey everyone, nice blooms. I haven't posted any blooms in a while since I've been chasing my kid across south GA watching soccer tournaments. The garden is coming along, despite the already ridiculous heat here. It's skipped spring and gone in to a blazing hot summer, with temps in the 90's everyday for over a week. Here are some of my lilies and daylilies blooming. I didn't realize I was such a fan of orange lilies. LOL, I've got quite a few of them.

Here's another first year for me that bloomed a week or so back - Starlette

Sorry Janae, hope your opens soon. I do like your . Starlette.

Jmorth, that Lion Heart is spectacular. I want a few more lilies but I'm torn as to where to order from. My usual place has been GH Wild and I can get their lily collection which I think is a bargain for the number of bulbs that I'd get. I also hope there's another lily co-op.

I have bought bulbs at Walmart only 2 times. A couple years ago I bought Red Dutch which was right. and last year I bought Center Fold.

This is what bloomed...lol!

More opened today on the other stalks...looks like 3 are right and 2 are this one.

Thanks, but sadly it won't be as lovely as it could. Rabbits have decimated entire clumps of lilies. They're absolutely horrid this year. DH found one in the garden that must have been torn up by a cat, so we left it out there for a couple days. Haven't seen another since. >:)

I use Repell All, and blood meal to scare the rabbits from my garden. They did get a few lilies but not as many as they did last year. I finally got to see some of my lilies bloom this year that had been decimated in the past. When I last put it down a few weeks ago I found rabbit babies under my coreopsis, and they ran away squealing like crazy, I didn't know rabbits made noises. I haven't seen them since. I usually use it once per month.

I've heard from several people that the rabbits are especially bad this year. Granular Plantskydd was applied first, then Repels All ~ twice! They're utterly immune. Thanks for all the kind words, though.

Pretty bloom, Cem.

Moby, I used Plantskydd granular last December when I saw vole trails to the lilies. Guess it was too late by then.I also spray with Repells all but didnt apply before the snow.
I am still figuring out a foolproof routine for winter protection.

We provide a nice winter home for voles by mulching the beds with town mulch. That ends this year.

If you plant miniature daffodils around your lilies you will not have the problem. I discovered this a couple of years back, and no longer have to spray them with anything after losing bulbs for years. I suggest miniatures because they are unobtrusive. And you only have to plant them once, since they remain for years. They are poisonous to rabbits and voles, and they don't even dig. I suggest WP Milner, a miniature trumpet, because it is very small, very cute, available from several sources, and quite inexpensive.

I lost no lilies this year, last year, or the year before - ever since I put them in.

I read someplace about the daffodils also, and have tried it the last two years, and have had no mole/ vole damage at all where the daffs were planted around the lilies. I used the full size daffs and put them about a foot apart.

Plus it's pretty. And they hardly ever die, so it's a one time investment.

Way to go Polly! Do spread the word. I've written about it several times, but people don't seem to know about it. I love it because it helps keep lily vendors going. Rather than stop buying altogether, maybe people will feel comfy enlarging their collections. It had that effect on me.

Naughty Moby, you don't need a billion. I put them, spaced as Polly does. So 12 daffs covers 12 feet.

And B&B has 2 early order discounts, 6% if you order by July1, 10% if you pay by July 1.

I used every granular repellant possible and later sprayed the stems with Plantskydd. Short of spraying ground-up rabbit guts on them I don't know how to make them any more distasteful. Never fear, next year will be better. My biggest worry is that they could be a vector for spreading virus as I have a couple that are suspect.

Even the neighbors are complaining about their gardens being ruined that I don't even have to hide when I'm out trying to shoot them. I can handle losing a stem or two but this is ridiculous. Maybe I could use that nice orange tabby for back-up as the cats around here seem to be slackers.
disregard the mess, I went on a rampage with the hedge clippers and chopped off all the over-hanging daylily foliage so I could more easily inocculate the bunnies with lead...
