Gardeners' Notes:

This spring I planted 5 bulbs that I got from Brent & Becky's. Large firm bulbs, but the stems only got to a bit over 2', with 2 large and very beautiful (and very fragrant) flowers each. I suspect that with more time for root establishment, they will be much larger next year.

What I thought most interesting is that, in a garden where Asiatic lilies require daily inspection for lily leaf beetle, the beetles left this OT hybrid completely untouched. I have heard that OT hybrids are relatively resistant to the beetle, but I couldn't imagine that the difference could be so dramatic.

I did not have good results with this lily. Although they are strong growers, all of mine did not grow upright, but rather at a 45 degree angle facing the sun despite being planted in full sun and in a location where other lillies did just fine.

This is an absolutely phenomenal lily. I purchased three from The Lily Garden several years ago, and they have nicely multiplied. Beautiful flowers, wonderful scent, completely disease and heat resistant (90 degrees) and well as exceptionally cold tolerant (20+below). The flowers are so large they bend a bit snd some need staking, but truly elegant.

Huge!! see my photos in comparison to stargazers - they were at least half as big, down facing, smelt nice and seemed to lasted a while. I got my bulbs from Brent & Becky's.

This is a fabulous OT (Oriental Trumpet) lily.

It is tall, around 6' in my garden. It has large open faced flowers in a hot pink and white color scheme. It blooms last of the OT's in my garden extending the bloom time of the OT season.

varying shades of pink swirl around and through the white petals of this lovely lily.

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.
