Since you all are having blooms, and I have nothing, and some of you are in colder climates than I am....obviously I need earlier blooming lilies. And I have quite a few asiatics. I do realize our late snow cover has something to do with it, but c'mon.

So please tell me your early bloomers. Thanks!

Martagons tend to be some of my first lilies to open, Red Russia, Pink Attraction.

For asiatics, the Tiny Series also open very early. Ad they are very easy to get a hold of Smiling

My LA's and LO's are always my first to bloom. But I'm in zone 10 so we don't really get a real winter.

Pretty, Doris!

I have Red Russia, Mags, but it's the first year.

Thanks NW15, any names you can give me of the first? I have LAs and LOs, but nothing blooming.

No, not yet. I planted it late, though, shame on me. It's looking good.

Elodie opened first, then Conca d'Or

Thank you both.

Don't have photos of the Conca d'Or but the Elodie was from this year.

First to open was Strawberry Custard.

There is another one starting to bloom but I can't ID it yet. It doesn't look like any of the ones I ordered this year so possibly from last years group.

They are slow opening here which is probably a good thing

After the marties, the earliest for me are Doeskin, Denia, Kill Me Kate, Solar Flare, Summer Night, Tropical Dream...

Edit: That would be KISS Me Kate
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?
