Nice Joanne! Everything looks good there. What other lilies do you grow there? I think its amazing how plants adapt to the shorter growing season per se', by taking advantage of the longer days and more light. How do you care for that Conca d'Or for winter?

I have a few asiatic, orientals and daylilies. I like this mailorder supplier and she has a great website. She ships globally

http://plantlilies.com/

I don't do any extra protection for the Conca D'or

Lynette has had a mail order lily business for years and is located about 4 hours NE of Calgary. She did a lily workshop a few years ago for the Calgary Horticultural Society. I learned a lot in that workshop. It was great.

Here's Starfighter (opened today) a few weeks later than other years

Everything is so pretty and arranged so well--just fantastic and your selections are great! That light pink lily in your last picture--do you remember the name of it? Champaine Diamond maybe? I'm planning to get a couple more Diamond series bulbs. I see 'Plantlilies' has that one listed.

Yes, I know of Plantlilies.com. I guess if your good, word gets around in the lily arena. I think they used to be 'Valley K'

Yes, that's correct Valley K

Sorry, I don't know the name of the light pink. It was from plantlilies
