Pretty lilies! I especially like Brushstroke and Polkadot Bikini!

We've had a long wet cool spring here and most of my asiatics are open now -- they are much taller than usual so I don't know if it's caused by the excess rain or the lack of sun. lol.

It's due to the water :wink:

I really like the soft orange color on Dessert Song and Africa Queen... but I do prefere then to get tall - not trees :lol:

I planted my bulbs very late and was not hoping anything would flower this season. However, I got these blooms........and surprise, (from the pack labeled Asiatic Lilies). Now, if anyone know its name, please let me know.

These are no name Asiatic Lilies...
