I have "renewed" my interest in lilies, and added a few new ones last fall, after years of no additions. I asked this forum last fall for a suggestion on what to purchase if I added just one. Someone gave me a one-word answer: Lankon - I thought that was pretty emphatic, and ordered it.

'Lankon' Thank you, the person who recomended it!!!

But I didn't stop; I ordered 12 more, incl. 7 OT's all of which have buds, and the other 5 are in bloom now.

'Eyeliner' - quite a beauty!

And my "old lilies" are blooming prolifically, and I am back in the lily mode!

Welcome back, Linda! Eyeliner is indeed a beauty; I haven't tried Lankon yet. It always looks nice and tempting though!

I truly love 'Lankon' - a tall strong plant, 8 blooms on 2 stems, first year! I think it will be amazing when it's had time to form a clump.
But since it is down-facing, I had to lie on my back underneath it to get the above photo!
