Pink Perfection - delayed bloom?

Posted by outinthegardenallday Zone 7, LI,NY (My Page) on

Greetings all. About 18 months ago, in the Fall of 2004, I planted a bunch of trumpets. Last year (Summer 2005) Golden Splendour, African Queen and Regale all came up. None of the Pink Perfection bulbs came up.

Well, in doing my daily garden walkabout, I've got what appears to be Pink Perfection coming up. I know from pictures I took last summer that these are "new" arrivals.

Have any of you experienced an appearance delay when planting lilies? I had this happen once before with Silk Road.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

RE: Pink Perfection - delayed bloom?

Ive had lilies, especially species lilies take a year off. They came up the next year, no problem. I don't know what makes them do that, but our climate is now screwed-up enough that I wouldn't blame them for being confused. They may come up late, or they may come up next year.
