I always love the lilies of summer. I recognize a few of these. The red tango looks like Starburst - that one gets incredibly tall here. Do I also see Gran Paradiso, the little bit blurry orange one? Another one that is really tall, sturdy, with tons of flowers. Cappuccino looks to be 2nd to last, and I love that last one - those really dark purples are so rich looking :) Is yours Landini?

Thanks for sharing :D

LOL, that's 2 less than I paid for a single... and it was friendship price :lol:

Got some :roll: new lillies this year, ......I have only seen ..and killed a few orange lilly bugs here at my new garden

5 years ago, I tossed all my lillies to the compost bin... the lilly bugs have eaten them all to a very ugly point :(

Thanks for sharing your pics... the lillies look very good

Ah, whats the name of that dark red, last picture? Soooooooooo beautiful.

I got like 12 bulbs for $5 at Walmart, on sale (asiatic ). I planted them all in pots for now, they are coming out nice, as in just 2 inches above the ground. Seeing these flowers....inspirational. Everytime I walk in my backyard, there is something to look forward too.

Pyrethum can handle the problem in an ecological way... just one problem, here the big compagnies have made it impossible to bye it, so I have 2 small plants in the window sill, hoping they will grow
