Lisa's lilies were front and center at the Chelsea Flower Show this year. Many are undergoing trials to see if they will make propagation standards by my friend Mr. Hyde in the UK.
I would like to see this thread become a showing of her lilies from her DG friends. So if you have a Buggycrazy lily picture, let's post them here!
Thanks, Moby! I'll change that x to a k, couldn't read it.
Sorry, I had edited this out as I asked if Lisa hybridized Sans Souci, and then found out she did not. But I don't know if there might be a San Souci. I'm putting this back in so Pirl's post doesn't look like she's talking to herself.
I think Sans Souci is a very old lily, intro'd by Leslie Woodriff, probably older than Lisa, but I don't know San Souci.
Lisa, was always helpful with the lilies you purchased from her. She communicated with me on lilies that I purchased from her, that were hydridized by her. The following she let me know were hers that I purchased.
Lilium pardalinum x columbianum
I hope this can help with this site if anyone as great pictures of her lilies. I'm not very good with taking pictures.
We all miss Lisa and I think she dropped her membership here! I have a friend that would like to acquire some of Buggy's lilies and reproduce them here in the states. If anyone wants to contribute to the project and has more than one bulb of something, drop me an email and I can put you in touch with the person. It would be nice to be able to buy her things again. I don't have as many as I would like as I had run out of room at my old house. Things are different here... I just thought it would be nice to recognnize her hard work!
Earlier this year I ordered many seeds from Lisa. I'll be getting them going this fall in the house. All the pictures I have seen of her flowers are just gorgeous, & I'd jump at the chance to trade with someone for any of them or to be able to purchase them. She did so well & its sad that she cant hybridize anymore. Very neat idea for this thread.. honoring her & her lilies.
By the way, DonnaMack, there are tons of threads from 2011 on the new site. I'd be glad to help you find your way around there if you're having trouble. I sure do wish we could get a thread somewhere with all Lisa's lilies together that we have pictures of on it.
She didnt die. Govt.regulations and other business complications just wore her down.
She quit the business and sold off her lilies.
I expect she is working for a big outfit somewhere.
The talent that got her recognised by the Chelsy Flower Show and Hyde's shouldnt go fo nothing.
