Red Flavour

The Red Flavours (Lilium lancifolium ‘Red Flavour‘) are blooming beautifully.

The dryness has made the red in them even darker this year.

They are very hardy and do not mind the cold winters or dry summers.

Lily

I was a bit disappointed in the spring because there were not that many lily bulbs for sale.

Then I found a way around the problem and started to buy ready planted pots from the stores.

I let them bloom in the balcony first and then take the pots to the summer cottage for planting. Hopefully I will have them blooming for many years.

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.
