Welcome JavaMom! Lilies and Roses are two of my all time favorite plants. I loved the Dallas Arboretum when I was lucky to go there and just amazed at all the gorgeous plants you can grow in Texas. Welcome!

Hi javaMom: Welcome!
What is the name of that pretty yellow one?

I've been in and out and around Dallas/Ft Worth a few times. Just by chance, I was in the Braniff concourse at DFW when their Concorde SST came in for the first time back in 1979; a big commotion with lots of TV coverage about at the time. I remember another time I took a back way around Burleson to Weatherford and got lost in a fog so bad I couldn't see the ground. I took a tour of the old Cowboys Stadium once and stood on the centerfield 'Blue Star'. And in 1997, Dallas/Fort Worth was chosen as the site for my wife's biannual family reunion. So lots of good memories for sure.

Anyway, I know you'll enjoy this forum. I've learned a lot here. When it comes to lilium, the 'regulars' on this forum each has a somewhat unique area of expertise. For example, I like to cross pollenate and hybridize to find something new and different. Another may like Species and another may grow them for beauty in mixed gardens and so on. It's a good place to ask questions regardless how simple or how complex or how dumb they may seem.

I should add we like pictures--lots of them, so post away. Include leaves and stems (whole plant) when possible. Smiling

Hi Lorn,

Thank you for stopping by.... We moved to Fort Worth almost 12 years ago from an assignment overseas, we picked it because my sister in law lives here and our boys need to go to school right away... So far with the wicked weather of TX, we love it here, just wish the Summer would be a little less fierce and more rain through the year... I'm sorry I am the kind of gardener that just planted things down and do not know most of the flowers I have... I think the yellow lily is Asiatic Lily, don't know its name though...I also have kind of tall and trumpet shape yellow color in my frontyard flower bed, I forgot to upload the photo...,it's like Cassablanca but yellow color...I basically only know Stargazer & Cassablanca, this Spring I planted more and I think one of them call Cobra (dark pink color)... Thank you again and I will add more photos...

Have a wonderful Easter everyone !

Lorn,
My husband told me that the Pilot now called DFW Airport, DFW intergalactic spaceport because it is so humongous . Hilarious!
