Boogie Woogie is a favorite O/T lily which grows and blooms in profusion here. These blooms were planted from bulblets four years ago, and now form a row 15 feet long in the vegetable garden. Height is about 40 inches: They make a nice display among the potatoes and other vegetables. Photo date is July 9, 2014. It is one of the finest growing, best looking, most useful and all around good garden plants no matter where it is planted in the home landscape. There are two very important comments in the data base that all lily fanciers should see. The are listed beneath the images here: Lily (Lilium 'Boogie Woogie')

I took a picture this morning of these lilies to compare them with one year ago. They are sweetly fragrant and can be smelled across the back yard from the house. They are actually planted in the vegetable garden where we grow onions, tomatoes and potatoes. Here is a photo from today to show their expansive nature.
