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.

Lily

It will still take three more months before the lilies (lilium) start to bloom up here in the north. The first ones will be blooming in July.

Noticed a lily pot in the local grocery store while shopping. It will bloom nicely in the balcony.

This is again a flower which, after blooming, will find its way to the garden. It will grow and bloom there also in the forthcoming years.

Lily

Bought one yellow for the Easter to start the season early.

Still few more months to go before the lilies (Lilium) start to bloom up here in the north.

When it has bloomed I will take it to the summer cottage and replant it. Not quite sure though that this variety can take the winter weather but will soon find out.

I bought few of them last year and planted. Few weeks from now I should see if they made it through the winter.
