white lilies, Wild & Son Co.
I recently received a catalog from Gilbert H. Wild & Son, Sarcoxi, Mo. There are lilies with prices that seem too good to be true. One is Arctic Ice, "crystal clear pure white Asiatic lily, late June, 3-4'tall." A package of 3 bulbs sells for $3.00. The other is Royal Respect, "creamy white LA hybrid, late June, 3-4' tall." A package of 3 sells for $3.50.
I checked Dave's Garden Watchdog site. There are many more positives than negatives about the company, but, oh, are the negatives frightening! Besides poor quality, mold, shriveled bulbs/roots, and rude customer service, there were many complaints of the wrong color. So I don't think I'll be ordering from them. However, if I find these varieties elsewhere, how would you rate Arctic Ice and Royal Respect? The colors and bloom time are what I'm looking for. Will the LA hybrid have more fragrance than the Asiatic? Thanks for sharing your knowledge (and perhaps experience with this company.)
