As you can see from my screenname...I do like lilies. In fact I believe I can conservatively say that I've planted several thousand in my gardens and most of them are named lilies.
I'm having something happen that has me totally puzzled. Easily 90% of the lilies that are up this year are orange...a color I'm not particularly partial to. I'm confident...at least I think so...that I didn't order or plant orange lilies in any quantity at all. BUT for some reason I have literally hundreds and hundreds of orange asiatic lilies in bloom in the gardens.
Any ideas how this could happen?? Common sense seems to tell me that lilies won't change their color over time back to an orange. I wonder if orange lilies are very cold hardy and reproduce tremendously...so the color lilies slowly die out and the hardy new invaders take over??
Any ideas?? lol...I'm totally dumbfounded by what's happening.
thanks for the help
