i have been looking for a while and know one seems to have there lily's that i am looking for snake head lily's and pink naked ladies well any color really i have a few trade of vegetables and herbs if anyone has these
It's too late for Brent and Becky's sale now, but they had the Snakes Head Iris Hermodactylus tuberosa), very inexpensive. They will have pink naked ladies in the spring and the sale starts early summer.
I think they're seldom offered in trade because they multiply slowly, at least in my garden.
This may be one of those situations where the use of common names causes confusion. I know Fritillaria meleagris as snakeshead lily (aka checker lily or guinea hen flower). This is a bulb - not a true lily - that is typically planted in fall for spring blooms. It can often be found in early spring in garden centers "in the green" or as starts, which may be the easiest way to plant as it can take several years before establishing and producing flowers if planted as bulbs. If in a happy location (full sun, good drainage and evenly moist, organic soils), they will naturalize very readily.
