For now, this page is a catch-all for the various types of true lilies we grow in our garden. They include oriental lilies, asiatic lilies and pixie lilies. I'll sort them out later...
||lilies (various species and hybrids)
||various colors (spring-summer)
||ordinary garden soil
|Grown from seed for 'Pink Perfection' |
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Mary Ann||Jun 09, 2005||Your lilies look great. You might like a variety I just tried called "Centerfold"
It's a Spring blooming Asiatic lily the is creamy white with maroon stripes in the throat. Asiatic lilies come in Spring and have no scent. Orientals come in summer and smell really strong. If you want to try crossbreeding it is easy to save pollen in little containers in the refrigerator. It can last up to a year. We like to cross pollinate and grow new colors from the seed. Lots of fun!! Lilies also sometimes produce little bulbils at the leaf bases as the flowers fade and/or bulb offsets just below the soil line, which you can propagate.|
- Seed for 'Pink Perfection' crosses from '06 trade. Baggy 65F (89%G, 8-11d)
- Seed for asiatic hybrid 'Luxor' from '08 trade. Baggy 65F (62%G, 14-24d)
- Seed for 'Luxor' same as above. Baggy 70F (no G, 22d)
Looks like seed is short-viable.
