The pink one is Baywatch. The white one at the front of the line is Gizmo. The big lilies are only 1+ year old plants. They are doing very well. Hope they don't get too tall, I like them 4 -5'.

Wow. Those are huge! My one year old plants are never more than two feet tall.

Beautiful lilies. I have ordered a few and was wondering how close do you plant them? I see that yours are fairly close and I love the look. Only hope mine will look like yours someday.

I planted these 12" - 15" apart. They are in rows since this is not my landscaped garden, it's my production garden. Nice, neat, orderly rows here, ha ha.

I think they grow straight because it's a good blend of sunlight and shade here, and this is the one garden I've got with good soil.

My other garden's, I've had to haul in soil and soil amendments.

May I ask what exactly are the names of the dark pink ones. I have a garden in full sun (iowa), do you think they will work there? Also how well do they spread, do I need to start with alot of bulbs to make a good showy lily clump?
Thanks

It looks like Starfighter to me, but there are several varieties nearly identical.

The dark pink ones (?) are Baywatch. I am talking about the pink ones, I don't consider them a dark pink.

The red ones with white edge are Flashpoint and they are FABULOUS. They are NOT Starfighter which is an Oriental.

Flashpoint is one of the new Oriental-Trumpet hybrids and it will do just fine in Iowa.

Pure Orientals do not do well here in St. Louis.

Flashpoint is a beauty. First year in my garden and even my hubby noticed it.
