Does anybody grow these huge lilies?
Here is what Breck's says about them:
As you might expect, lily flowers of this massive size offer many exciting possibilities. They are ideal for planting at the back of borders or the corner of beds where their massive height can be fully appreciated. They are excellent visual anchors that will help define your landscape. Blooms appear in mid to late summer while the lush, bright green foliage lasts all season forming a magnificent backdrop for other lilies as well as other perennials.
Hardy in zones 3-10, Lily Trees will thrive in full sun to partial shade. They naturalize well and require no special care. In fact, the massive stems are so strong, the plant needs no added support! Hardy as well as vigourous, your Lily Trees will increase and bloom again every year.
I can't believe they don't need staking!
Remember the speciality big smelly bulbs I bought last year - Draculus Vulgaris? Well, they never even came up this year so I need to write to Breck's for a refund. I also bought some glad bulbs that can supposedly be left in all winter, but so far nothing from them either. Maybe I should buy some of these giant lilies with the refund?
is that Canon SD1000 the one you have been using for your videos? I like the price on that one so will have to check it out.
By the way I am playing around with my header trying to incorporate both gardening and quilting. (If you pop in here often, you have probably noticed that it keeps changing.)
Working on a Which Witch Halloween Dinner Table - After a couple of years, I finally finished my paper-pieced (a quilting technique) chair covers. I think they go nicely with the witch hat I bought last yea...
