Identifying lilies from Breck's

redwolfdoc_z5(5)November 5, 2013

Hello!

I'm pretty new to lilies and ordered "Carpet Border Lily Mixture." I know they're Asiatic and they come in red, yellow, pink and white, but Breck's website doesn't give any more info that that. Does anybody know offhand what the actual cultivars are? I'd prefer to be specific on my garden markers!

Here's a photo...

Thanks!

For starter's, ask Brecks what's in the mix. They should be able to tell you. Your link doesn't work--but I've seen the picture/description beforehand anyway.

The actual cultivars are listed only by color for the most part - Carpet Border Red, Carpet Border White, etc. The exceptions are a couple of bicolors - Carpet Border Starlight Magic and Carpet Border Starlight Express.

Thank you, interspecific!

Breck's answered my inquiry in good time. For anybody interested, the cultivars in the mix are:

Crimson Pixie
Butter Pixie
Forever Marjolein
Reinesse
and
Abbetsville Pride, which is the orange one, though I can't find it through Google under that name...

Okay, found the proper spelling for that last one (Breck's made a typo):

Abbesville Pride

Glad that worked for you. Brecks is a pretty good company.
