These are from B&D Lilies Dianna's Purple Annual Poppies love them!! And a couple at peak asiatics, a double yellow and the pink with purple splotches as "Dot Com". Nice way to start the day.

Pretty as an artist's palette. The purple poppy is stunning, and will you please come do my edging?

Wow! Your poppies and lilies are GORGEOUS! I planted some of the same poppy seeds from B&D but they never germinated for me :-(. I will order more from them this fall.

Your yellow lily is beautiful, but it is not 'Conca d'Or'. It looks more like a yellow LA lily. 'Conca d'Or' is much larger in both plant and bloom and has much of the look and poise of an Oriental lily. I have six plants that have buds barely an inch long right now, even though my one LA lily (which I suspect might be 'Salmon Classic') is in glorious full bloom just like yours.

Do you grow any other types of lilies? I have a couple of buds of Lilium regale that just opened this morning. What fragrance! And I have an Asiatic called 'Rosepoint Lace' that I have fallen in love with.

Lilies (and poppies too) are such amazing garden plants. I am always surprised that more people don't grow them.

What a garden bed! It goes on forever. And it looks like you grow all of my favorites- irises, daylilies, lilies- I would love to see your garden in person.

The big yellow hybrid lily is luscious. Thanks for posting pics of it.

I planted the same poppy this year. Love the color!

There are several yellow lilies in here the short double asiatics I don't have the name for. The tall very full lemon meringue ones I have in several groupings. They are perfectly marvelous at least 4.5' and are showing signs of spreading lots of small stalks. This is just the 2nd year. I am sure I ordered from John Scheepers / Van Engelon put that one is a real winner. This shot is 10 days ago just starting to bloom on anoth clump.
