Baby Lilies


Baby Lilies

In case you aren't caught up with the story, I planted sprouted asiatic bulbs a few years ago, not knowing that you place them upright regardless of the direction the sprout is growing. So nothing. But the next year little lily leaves came up and now the second year, they bloomed. Now I've at least 15 of these beauties.

Thank you. I'm so pleased to have them not only survive but increase and bloom quickly. Now they are more established I'll move them around next spring. They were placed poorly for this many.

Thank you. I wish I'd kept the card with the name on them. They will just be my babies I guess. :-)

Thank you Michaella. They have done so well out there on their own. I just water and watch them grow up. :-)

Thank you. They give so much. I still can't believe these are there from a misplanted bulb years ago!

Thank you! It is well worth the wait. Lost the name long ago, but they can just be my babies. I love the two tone, and since they are a clump of bulbs they have flowered for almost two months, very long for a lily. A gardening success story. :-)
