Tables for Lily bud count ?

phylrae(z5a/centralNYS)November 10, 2005

When I first looked into growing lilies I remember seeing a table online somewhere that listed the typical bud count of mature lily cultivars....but now I can't seem to locate it. Does anyone know where I could find something like this again? I'm not a bigtime grower, but am interested in lilies for the vase, and thought that it would be smart to look for ones that had a higher bud count. Any suggestions? Thanks. Phyl

Thanks so much for looking into this for've always been so helpful to me (on the cutting forum especially). I found this site too, but I know I found a totally different, more specific article with even more cultivars somewhere a year or so ago....just can't locate it again. But this is a good one too. Hope you're doing well! :0) Phyl

Try looking at
They have bud counts for quite a few varieties,that they have taken from their own trial house.
One thing to remember is that on varieties with a high bud count,that the buds are generally smaller.
In the U.K. the top sellers are varieties with huge buds, there are less on a stem,but they make much more impressive bunches.
