My Luna Pink Swirl comes back faithfully every year! I grew these guys from seed about 6 years ago .. there are 6 plants in my front bed by the road. This year they are really knocking themselves out!

Those are beautiful, Anne. Do you prune to maintain the shape/size or will they reach a taller height by summers end?
Love the flowers.

Thanks! I don't prune them at all .. they won't get any taller than this.

Xeramtheum,

I wintersowed the seeds that you sent me last year and I have 5 little plants! They are doing great and I'm hoping for some beauties in a year or two.

Thanks again!

Ann I love that lily. I had a beautiful one in a pot on my front patio last year and it was stolen, sure would like to get another one.
