Let's Talk Lilies

Lilium " Scheherazade"

I attended a seminar on Sunday sponsored by the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon and put on by the newest study group, the lily group. It was a double-hitter presentation by two of the Pacific Northwest's lily experts, Dr.Wayne Hoffman and Judith Freeman. Dr. Hoffman had a slide presentation and spoke of wild lilies. Judith spoke on her hybrid creations she has made. Before the presentation and after The Lily Garden had bulbs for sale which is owned by Judith. Of course I could not stand by and let others buy, me nothing. From the YG & P show and this last Sunday I have about 20 new lily bulbs to plant in the gardens. Looking forward to planting these bulbs and seeing what wonderful flowers will grace the gardens. I will try to post a list of the new lilies that I will be planting. Next month is a talk on Pacific Coast Irises, which is another great plant to include in your gardens.
