Lilies for the Garden

By pardalinum

Hybrid lilies (genus Lilium) are sorted into eight divisions that are based on their genetic background. The most common and readily available lilies for the garden are from Division I, Asiatic hybrids; Division VI, Trumpet hybrids; Division VII, Oriental hybrids; and Division VIII, Interspecific or hybrids that don't fit into any of the other seven divisions.

Great descriptions of these beautiful flowers. I have several and always looking for more. I love the coops because you can get several at good prices. Waiting for the next one. Thanks Elaine
