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.

Prunotto

Lilies are doing well this summer. I have several different varieties in full bloom.

For several years the Prunottos (Lilium ‘Prunotto’) have performed well and seem to be very suitable for this area.

I like the bright color they have and they also seem to be very easy when it comes to the soil requirements.

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.

Casa Blanca

Casa BlancaI do not know what it is with the lilies. It seems that I managed to buy many new varieties in the spring without even realizing what I was doing.

I guess it is that they last several years and are easy to maintain. They come in so many different forms and colors. You simply never going to have enough of them.

Casa Blanca was the one who made the largest blooms this summer. It sure is a successful cross between speciosum lily of China and auratum lily of Japan.

Now have them in my balcony but going to take them to the summer cottage before the first frost.

PS. Bought the bulbs from Amsterdam Tulip Museum and regret that I only bought two. Should have taken a larger amount.
