Waiting on Mixed Lily bulbs to bloom is like Christmas.

I planted 20 Mixed Asiatic Lilies this spring and all are getting ready to bloom. I get up every morning and run outside to see if any have bloomed. It is so exciting not knowing what is about to open. I feel like a little kid at Christmas. Here are 2 that bloomed yesterday.

I absolutely love this one. Hope it multiplies.
NoID Asiatic Lily

This is darker than my crimson pixie and it has dark spots in the center. The petals are kind of pointy. I thought they weren't open all the way but it still looks this way this morning. We will see how it shapes up next year.

NoID Red Asiatic

Will be posting more as they bloom. Hope I have a good variety and they don't all end up being the same.

RE: Waiting on Mixed Lily bulbs to bloom is like Christmas.

I know what you mean! I like surprises too; I think I enjoy it even more when I dont know what I am getting. I traded for a lot of daylilies this year and watching those set buds has me much more excited than for the daylilies where I know what color will be where. Last year I bought a lot of asiatics on sale. I ran out of good places and ended up putting them here and there in other parts of the yard. Now I have lilies popping up and I have no idea what color they will be. I was going to label all my lilies but decided maybe I wont: its more fun to see a bud taking on a blush of color and wondering if that will be the pink one, the red one, etc. I found a raspberry colored one today and I have no memory of buying anything that color.
