How can I save seeds from a bouquet of Lilies?

christieb199(6)June 19, 2008


My S.O got me a bouquet of white lilies for my birthday, wow do they smell amazing, scents up the entire first floor of the house!

Anyways, first I am wondering if I can save the seeds from these beauties, and if I can, how do I?

Where will the seeds be located if these lilies produce seed?

Thanks in advance!

I would like to have lilies like this on my kitchen table daily, I wonder how much the bouquet cost him, lol.

Christie, the Lilies you received are most likely Orientals 'Casablanca'. They are very common and cheap. You can buy their bulbs at any big box store locally in spring or fall. This is a hybrid Lily and it will not come true to type from seeds. Besides, it is virtually impossible to collect seeds from the cut flowers. Also, Lilies bloom once a year. The regular time for Orientals to bloom is July. Your Lilies were forced to bloom in June. So you will not be able to "have lilies like this on your kitchen table daily".
