Gardeners' Notes:

I purchased the bulbs at a well known discount store this spring labeled "Woodruff's Memory," but comparing my picture to the other two pictures above mine there seem to be some slight differences. My flowers are indeed really huge--7 to 8 inches across, and the fragrance is fabulous and goes out at least 80 feet or more at night, but my flower seems more recurved and less intense in color, and has these interesting white bumps instead of colored spots. I examined this flower very carefully, because I have grown oriental lilies for years, but have never seen any with these white bumps. And the bumps did seem an integral part of the flower, not some bug or disfigurement. Does anyone know anything more about this beautiful plant, especially the mysterious white bumps?
