Love the blooms! (pics)

socksJuly 16, 2013

I'm so enjoying the lilies now that they are just starting to bloom. I wanted to share some pictures. It's pretty hot here, so the blooms don't last long. They have a few hours morning sun, shade the rest of the day. Anyone else want to share pictures?


First year for Sunny Crown in my garden

More Sunny Crown

Here's First Crown

thanks for sharing, they are so so so beautiful! Isn't Flashpoint a strong growing thing? For me it is! Within the FIRST YEAR it put out bulblets. Crazy. By the end of the second years I was dividing clumps.

I just got Flashpoint and planted it in May. It has grown so well with lots of blooms, but they aren't as deep in color as B&D shows in their catalog. More like Stargazer, which is fine.

I'm new to these lilies and am not sure how to handle bulblets. I had a few short spindly ones pop up (6" high). I guess those are the bulblets and I can leave them to return next year. (?)

It's also the first year for Sunny Crown. What a cheerful, pretty flower, and they are lasting pretty well.

Thanks for your reply. Enjoy your lilies.

Yes, leave the bulbets and they"ll come back bigger and should flower next year.
