Oriental Lilies Distant Drum and Davyd


I paid a couple of dollars for this lily from B and D Lilies and took part on their research on how this lily perform in different gardens across the US. This picture is taken just a few minutes ago prior to writing this post. I planted this lily in a spot where it receives about 3.5 hours sunshine, from around 9 AM-12:30 PM as they recommend afternoon shade.

The bulb that I got is on the small side so I did not expect to get a lot of blooms. I am lucky I got two buds from it. Anyway, comparing these pics on B and D's site , they are very different from each other.

Davyd, described as fluffier than 'Miss Lucy' (I think it is the first double flowered Oriental.) in terms of blooms. I never get to see that "fluffier bloom". The growing condition is similar to Distant Drum. I planted them one foot apart from each other. Click here for Davyd pic.

I am not going to try another double flowered Oriental in my garden. I will stick to OTs and other lilies on different divisions.

The above pics will be send to B and D lilies for their research.

They're really different and I think I like yours a lot better than the one at the B and D site. Pretty cool that you got to participate in this study of how it performs.

Thanks. Yea, it is a cool looking lily, I agree.

STUDY is the right word. :) Please do excuse my English, it is my second language. :)

Hi Lily, You have such wonderful lilies all over your blog, they are making me dizzy. I'm beginning to feel crazy over lilies too. Currently I only have the rain lilies.

Thank you. I am real crazy about lilies. I have a lot more varieties that are not posted in my blog. I have no time to add more posts right now. Thank you for stopping by.
