Gardeners' Notes:


On May 31, 2012, Ispahan from Chicago, IL (Zone 6a) wrote:

A lovely Asiatic hybrid lily. I only planted my bulbs in Fall 2011, so this is the first season these lilies have bloomed for me. Flowers are large, about 4.5 inches across and have heavy spreckling with a faint rose cast over the entire blossom. I was shocked to see these lilies showing tiny central buds on the stems when only 3 or 4 inches tall this spring, but the stems have since developed into sturdy little 22 inch tall plants. I look forward to increased bud count and taller stems next season!
