Mount Cook

The last of the lilies are now blooming and it will be nearly a year before they start the circle again.

Mount Cook (Lilium‘Mount Cook’) is blooming and I have planted it to a place where fertilizer cannot be used because of the closeness of the lake.

It still seems to be doing well. Natural it will have less blooms and be a bit shorter but the strong smell of this lily is still there.

Navona

Navona (Lilium ‘Navona’) was a buyer gift when I made an order years ago. I was not considering white lilies to the garden at that point of time.

But I must admit that it has been a gift that I have liked a lot.

The Navona blooms are big and pure white. It has grown well in a challenging location where the birch trees take the nutrients and consume the water.

Tiny Nugget

It has been a good summer for the lilies.

The early ones like Tiny Nugget (Lilium ‘Tiny Nugget’) bloomed early and the late ones are blooming as we speak.

Lilies are easy to care though have had some troubles with the red lily beetles (Lilioceris lilii) recently. Must take them seriously next spring since they are getting numerous.

Seadov

Seadov (Tulipa ‘Seadov’) is a newcomer to my garden. Acquired 100 bulbs last autumn and all of them are now blooming.

In the beginning the color of the flower is modest but intensifies with the time and becomes something close to cranberry.

What I like most is the way Seadov grows. It is mid high variety and very stern. Even though it has rained a lot all Seadovs are standing straight and unaffected by the weather.

Beauty of Apeldoorn

Tulips are still blooming up here in the north. This year the weather is warm and it will make the season a short one. Cannot complain, I just enjoy the sunshine.

Beauty of Apeldoorn (Tulipa ‘Beauty of Apeldoorn’) is doing well and displaying its beautiful colors.

Already made the tulip bulb order for the autumn and going to have two more varieties in the garden.
