Gardeners' Notes:

Beautiful fragant blooms. When I first planted the bulbs the stems grew up above my spouting (9' +/-). After 15 yrs they are only getting about 4' high. I've never divided them or anything. Can someone tell me what I need to do - how/what to fertilize them with as I'm going to dig them and replant to spread them out.

Altari - cranberry crush with whipped cream edges; lovely.

This exciting new group of lilies is a result of hybridizing fragrant oriental lilies with the regal, large flowered trumpet lilies. The selection process is rigorous where strengths of both groups are sought; produces larger flowers, stronger stems and more vigor.
