Lilies From My Friend's Garden

This post is not really season appropriate but during summertime I don't have that much time to blog. Now winter is here, I have the time to go through the photos taken during the 2011 gardening season and make posts about them.

These photos are taken from my friend's garden. She is not into lilies but she grew a few gorgeous ones.

These red Asiatic lilies produced bulbils. The Tiger lily is famous for producing bulbils, the pea-size brown-black things that grow in the leaf axils.

Here is the list of Species and Asiatic lilies compiled by this author.
Lilies With Bulbils.

These bulbils were collected during my visit. I stored them in the fridge for a few months and now they are ready to be planted.

These orange beauties are growing in different locations in her garden. She gave me some bulbs a few years ago. To me, they look like they have strong L. lancifolium (Tiger Lily) genes.

I believe these are Grand Paradiso.
