I'm usually completely content to enjoy my blooms in the garden; however, since Muscadet has opened I haven't been able to resist bringing its scent indoors. Drooling

First year blooms, clipping just about 2" worth of bloom stem. This won't damage my plants, will it?

No, you'll be doing your plant a favor--honest! Blooming is stressfull and takes energy. Now your Muscadet can dedicate the rest fo the season to grow a larger bulb.Your plant will be taller and produce a higher bud count next year because of it!

Awesome!

Thanks, Lorn. Thumbs up

These are scrumptious lilies!
