I returned home from 8 days of vacation at the beach and found Citronella open today. What a treat, when we left, I thought I wouldn't get to see it bloom.

After a 4-day respite, I came home to find lilies a-sproutin'.

I think this beauty is Montego Bay and is supposed to be an asiatic. The color, kind of a cross between apricot and a soft mauve, is amazing, and the light scent is magnificent. Blooms are very large.

While pineapple lily (Eucomis) is not a true lily, it's a great plant, Cem, and yours really looks like a pineapple. It is sooo pretty! If you've grown it before, you now its benefits.

Around here it is winter hardy, and for me it has multiplied. It is a good cut flower for bouquets.

Regale is both a species and a trumpet. The great explorer Henry Wilson found it at the end of the 19th century. He was hiking over a mountain in China, came over the peak and there were thousands and thousands of them in full bloom. He brought back bulbs, so pretty much every Regale is a descendent of the bulbs he brought back.

And trumpet and aurelian appear to be the same thing.

Donna, I have Regale envy, ;~). I keep looking at it, but haven't ordered it yet. Your picture has now made it a definite that it has to be ordered for the fall. Thanks also for that interesting bit of history.

Here's my Conca d' Or that opened today. I almost missed it, since it was being weighed down by the Baptista that had set seed. Bad Baptista!!!! It's been severely punished, and some of the seed heads met the garden reaper this afternoon. LOL.

Yep. LMK if you want any Baptista seeds ( just kidding). It's really pretty when blooming, then the plants/shrubs get too heavy when it goes to seed and flops over all the other plants. I'm going to have to tame it again this year. Last year I started using really long twist tie to hold it against the fence and off of the other plants.

Cem,

They should not need staking, even with age. When I purchased them over ten years ago, the instructions specifically said not to feed them, because baptisia australis fixes its own nitrogen. If you fertilize them or put them in lush soil you are over feeding them.

These are over ten years old. This is in early June. Not just tough love - NO love. Never fertilized, never watered.

I have two that I got two years ago. Have moved them once or twice so they are still pretty small. It is nice to see what they will look like (I hope.) I don't fertilize but they get watered along with the rest of the garden. is that okay? Right now I only have three for four 12" shoots and they do sort of lean a little. They die back to the ground each winter, yes? So you cut down the dead stuff in the fall?

Mstella,

You can cut the back in either fall or spring. I usually wait till spring because in fall there is so much protection to be applied to things like roses. They do look quite awful in the spring so if you have the energy to cut them in the fall that might be better.

Interesting - during the winter before last I could see that voles tunnel through the base of one of my baps. They were stalking some lilies (but since the lilies had daffodils around them the little devils backed off and didn't harm them). I wondered if the baps would be damaged in the spring. No! They came back as dense as ever. What a plant!

Maybe I need to plant tons of daffys in my garden now that I know I have a vole infestation. I have a few, but not all in strategic places. I really want to protect my roses, my one remaining azales, and bushes. I will give it a try this fall.

Mine have always needed staking although I pretty much leave them alone - no fertilizer - maybe some water when the rest of the bed needs it. This year I have lilies planted around them and they are supporting each other! I also have oriental poppies which pretty well disappear under all the foliage, and daffodils around the outside. I also have zillions of babies, which has never happened before. probably because I started weeding this bed when I added some new colors of baptisia!

I always trim my baptisia a couple of weeks after blooming because they get so full they crowd out the lilies for sun, and I don't need to have them to go to seed. Despite the abuse, they always come back full and tall.

My error, Montego Bay is an OT, not an asiatic, hence the lovely scent, and by surprise I think there are a few other OTs based on the size of bud and the bell shape of the forthcoming bloom.

Lilies have to be really tall to get their share of light. Silk Road is ideal, because it has a very tall, strong stem. The original idea was to hide the stem, since it is not the prettiest. This way I get the benefit of the beauty of the flower, which has an industrial strength stem.

I wonder if the PlanSkydd is only topical. That is , only for critters above ground. Maybe voles don't have a sense of smell.? No. Only kidding. It works great to keep moose off my stuff, as well as visiting neighbors, children, dogs, etc.

Oh, didn't know there was such. I can see that it might work on voles. And no smell. I guess I thought it was the awful smell of blood that kept the unwanted critters away. I mix and spray all over the front garden where I have no fences. It is only bad for a day or so, then I think mostly only the animals with a heightened sense of smell can catch it. I have watched moose eating an apple tree 15 feet from my gardens then eye my plants for a while, then reluctantly walk away.

Now, talk about arising from the dead! I was given Jubileo by the Lily Garden as a freebie a good ten years ago. It blooms twice, but the rabbits would take it out every spring. Then I put in miniature daffs and it reappeared last year, at six inches tall, with one flower. This year it is almost two feet tall and has lots of buds - yummie!

Believe it or nor, Nanny, I got great shots of WH by lying on my back under the plant and shooting up. It looks gorgeous that way.

Anastasia I got lying on my tummy and using a zoom lens.

Of course, you could reasonably argue that only a nut would lie on her back or stomach in a garden under a plant to get a pic. I plead guilty to that.

Lilium Emerald Temple. I wish you could smell it. Another out of commerce lily. The arrival of orienpets seemed to doom trumpets, but I got this from B&D years ago, and I just love it.

TLG does indeed sell trumpets, but some of the older ones that I prefer, like Silver Sunburst (which I got from Old House Gardens), Emerald Temple (which I got from B& D), and Amethyst Temple are hard to come by. Fortunately White Henryi and Lady Alice are still available. I contacted TLG when I was trying to find AT, and they had Purple Palace instead, and offered it to me. The temples and sunbursts simply seem to have been pushed out of the way.

Donna, your Emerald Temple is beautiful! I appreciate your mentioning about the strong stem feature--I was wondering about that. I missed the boat on this one from B&D and regretted ever since. I agree, the Temples and trumpets in general seem to have been put on the sideline and I don't like it. Thankfully, there are those like you, NALS and many regulars in this forum that will keep the interest in trumpets! Your Amethyst Temple is beautiful also!

Thank you roosterlorn (what a great name!) I was so grateful to get ET from B&D. It is particularly strongly stemmed. I think that the problem is that the colors are considered too mild by many people. I do understand - I added several reds to my garden last season!

Here is a clump of them. The tomato tape that you see on a couple of them is not to support them, but to pull them away from the sharp blades of miscanthus sinensis Morning Light.

Each time we walk out the door, we're met with the light perfume of our lilies. Either I'm getting very forgetful or there are too many lilies, because I don't remember planting some of the beauties that are coming up this year. And I don't think we can have too many lilies.

B&D tend to take things out of circulation to increase their stock. If you email them (Bob and Dianna) they will answer you. I have never tried to cross pollinate. I do grow other peoples' seeds. The North American Lily Society has a seed exchange that includes dozens of crosses, some of them fascinating. Lazy people like me just buy the seeds.

DonnaMack: I recently joined NALS and ONE BIG REASON for that was the seed program. Because I like trumpets. I've been 'around the horn' so to speak with the commercially availabe lilies for the last 10-15 years and I keep coming back to those trumpets. I guess we all get to point with lilies where we always want something that we can't get or is not available--LAs and OTs are so prominant in the marketplace they are no longer a challenge to me. We can always get those. Its that challenge of the unknown--of what might be! Donna, you had a post in Feb. I believe about NALS seed program. I joined NALS the next day!!!

Greetings.
The North American Lily Society has a wonderful program in which lily seed is provided, usually for $1.00 a packet. Wonderful people from all over the world take lily seed and prepare it for shipment (a very time consuming task). Some of these are their own lily hybrids that they created.

Here is the blurb from their website:

"NALS operates a seed exchange for members, offering seed from hybrid and species lilies. The exchange provides members with a unique opportunity to obtain rare and unusual seed that is impossible to obtain elsewhere. All seed is donated by members, and is sold at a nominal cost to defray expenses."

It's closed for the year, but if you would like to see the seed that was offered this year, by division, go here:

http://www.lilies.org/2011seeds/seedindex.html

It's $20 a year for individuals. A wonderful organization.

Oh, Rooster, I just read your post. Thank you! Thank you for joining NALS!

There are so many fashions in lilies - and there is nothing wrong with that. I paid big bucks for two lilies. One was Anastasia, an orienpet early on 3 for close to $40, but It is fine because it reproduces readily, is stunning, has fairly strong stems, great disease resistance and a fabulous scent. I think that I ultimately got my money back because the original three became at least 25. I have moved them to clumps in three places in my yard and given others to friends. But that raises the question of WHY it cost so much. Because it was new. Since I bought it directly from TLG and greatly admire Judith Freeman I am happy with that - more power to her. But Luminaries was $30, and when I bought it from a lily society for half that price I was pleased. Until it failed to appear. And companies like Wayside but them cheaply from Judith and then blow them out when they can't sell them (Silk Road went from $14.95 each to three for $12.00 a few years back - guess when I bought them).

Now mind you, as you do, I like LA's and OT's. But the trumpets have become the backbone of my collection. They have all the qualities of Orienpets, wonderful vigor, great disease resistance and scent. But I suspect that they can't be patented so the profit in the is minimal. Just like old garden roses can't be patented. And I managed to get, for $1, seed for lilium candidum 'Cascade Strain' collected by Ed McRae. I'm sure you've priced madonna lilies (ouch!).

Now let me stop blabbing. Forgive me. It's just so wonderful to find someone who feels about these wonderful lilies the way I do.

DonnaMack: There are many good reasons for joining NALS; I just mentioned one. For me, its the personal satisfaction and gratification of knowing I'm extending someone elses common interest and hard work of pollenation, seed collecting and recording detail when it comes to seeds. I've been growing lilies for years and love all divisions--and unlike most people who have lilies mixed in their flower garden--I have mainly lilies with just an occasional seasonal accent plant. I, too, have much respect and admiration for Judith Freeman and her work--we are very fortunate! I have to stop before this post goes too far off the central subject. I'll be on that .org site soon. Thanks again!

I REALLY did not take care of them. And then I decided to dig them up and put them in a pot. I think that, by default, means instant love, because they get new soil, new compost and new fertilizer. The ones in pot have opened sooner than the ones in the ground, which are still in bud. So don't despair!

Here is a perfect example of "pot love". The Silk Road in the middle was dug up a month ago and put in a pot. The other two, from the same location, were put in pots today. The one in the middle is over a foot taller and has bloomed. We are having such a hot and horrible summer that I did it to protect some of my lilies. It has as it did White Henryi, produced larger flowers with more intensity of color.

Hey guys. This really doesn't belong here but I don't see a forum for digitalis or foxglove so I figured I would ask you all. I planted two flowers (three of each) last year. Apricot Beauty and Hyacinth Hybrid - both digitalis. Some died and some lived. I don't know which is which. Is there any definitive way to tell them apart. The HH's should be various colors, and I do have small blooms on one but nothing conclusive. Also, I heard they were biennial? True? Any help is appreciated. I looked at the pictures here at DG til my eyes have crossed, but still can't see any difference.

I've got Asiatics, LAs, Trumpets, OTs out today. Others that should have bloomed by july 4th won't be out for another week. I'm finally back in circulation now after this latest bout of storms . No electricity for 3 days straight and 1 day another. Lots of cleanup and some lily damage by flying branches--but fortunately none of my favorites. Did you have any damage?

Roosterlorn, I wondered if others were seeing it. Now I have two Orientals in bloom, while the Asiatics, Orienpets, Trumpets continue. My LA's haven't appeared yet, but this is weird. I take lots of dated photos so I know when things bloomed. I have an Asiatic, Jubileo, that has been blooming for weeks. Year after year the rabbits bit it down in spring, so this is the first year in about 6 that it has bloomed and reached its full height. It's throwing a party for itself. It has numerous buds that are opening in sequence.

The damage issue here is very spotty. I had no damage at all. I didn't even lose power. Some communities with trees (Libertyville) still haven't recovered. But communities built on farmland (Grayslake) experienced power outages for several days. The city of Chicago got trounced. Many people MAY have power on the weekend. On one block in Grayslake, a person's attic was completely flooded, and another had an uprooted tree, but the houses in between experienced no damage. I didn't realize the extent of it until I drove around and found many traffic light out in other communities, or watched television. A truly freaky storm.

Donna, the storm was really bad here; trees and power lines down everywhere. Anyway, the lilies I got from Judith Freeman(LAST FALL) are doing great. Seafarer, Summer Palace and Ice Follies are blooming. Sinfonia and Fanfare in a day or two. Everybody likes Seafarer. I've taken about 340 pictures and hopefully I can get some posted soon.

I looked at American Meadows inspite of mixed history with them. Decided not. Right now I am up to my ears in poppies. I try to hand labels on them so I can separate the seeds but they all start being just a 'titch' different so I should just stick with white, purple, lavender, black,red, etc

Mary, the composition IS lovely. Are those platycodon (balloon flower)? That lily is very pretty. I'm guessing you have about 4 more weeks of lilies coming. Ours are just on the tail end, and a few are still opening, but the platycodon blooms are larger this year than I recalled.

Our big container lilies did not do well even though they had a great start, either from blocked drainage or beetles or both. The lily beetles did a tremendous amount of damage once physical therapy destroyed my back and I could not spray. Back is somewhat better, but the damage is done.

Are your oriental lilies opening or just asiatics?

Oh my. What a freebie! I am buying it along with a mix of others, orientals, OT, asiatics, etc. I even told them that they could substitute as long as they didn't pick or orange or yellow. I have a fair amount of that color. Next time I will give the request a try. I placed an order with Schreiners and the freebie was a $40 tall bearded iris. I was surprised and thrilled.

Better yet, Wayside, the same year, was trying to sell what were obviously Judith's Silk Roads for $14.95 each. I suspected that they got them for much less and marked them up , and I figured that if I was going to pay that much for a lily, I'd pay the hybridizer.

Well, I guess the price was too high for a lot of people, so they lowered the price to $12 for THREE! As you can imagine, I jumped at that, so with Judith's freebie, I got four Silk Roads for $12.00. All four bulbs were fantastic.

I've had them for years. They reproduce really well. I started with three and had so many I moved them to a bed and then started giving them to people. I paid $42 for three, so be happy! It's my favorite lily. Here it is in different locations. They started in a grass bed. As you can see, they bend gracefully.

Even as the alliums fade, you get a very cool look. As you can tell, I love this lily. If I could only have one, this would be it. I've had them fro at least 6 years. I've never lost one.

And they mature really fast. I envy you the gasp you are going to produce when you see your first ones in bloom!

No, it isn't necessary. It stand straight and tall in the ground. That's one of its advantage over Casa Blanca, which I love and also have. And I have never lost a Crystal, but the dozen Casas I once hade have dwindled down to 2. In fact, when I dug up one of my Crystals to move it, I was thrilled to see that it had formed two good sized bulbes, which were attached to it by a strand of some sort. So it increases readily too!
