Gardeners' Notes:

Positive TBGDN On Aug 31, 2006, TBGDN from Macy, IN wrote:

I ordered one bulb of Golden Splendour back in February from American Meadows to compare with several other gold/yellow trumpets that have been in my collection some time. The problem I have faced is 'losing' the names of certain plants after many years of just calling them "that gold trumpet lily", or that "pink Oriental", etc. I can rest assured what I got from American Meadows is not anything I currently am growing. The one bulb I received on May 6, 2006 was planted the same day it arrived, and was showing TWO growth spikes within a few weeks. It had self-divided and sent up two stems with both giving me two blooms each in its first summer after planting. It is very attractive, and I can only imagine what its growth and blooms next year will be like.

I was so impressed with the flowers and fragrance of this Lily I order the other 3 varities in the catalog. Beautiful bright yellow to golden flowers so large and heavy they had to be staked. The fragrace was heavenly of slight rose but more of a berry like, oh it was wonderful....
