Checking in with a new lily, Lilium 'Courier'. (taken with a little point and shoot, colors and crispness not up to par, gotta get out the big camera again!)

Just following the rest of the crowd over here! I need to get outside and get pictures of my blooming lilies. I missed snapping a few before the roofers did a number on them. Just waiting for the newer blooms to open, since the first ones got battered. Learned a new trick in the process, though. One of the stems got completely broken off, so I brought it inside and trimmed it shorter, and popped it in a vase. In no time, the vase had tipped over and spilled water and lilies all over my (cluttered) kitchen table. I pulled a bag of polished stones out of my desk drawer (can't remember what I bought them for, ages ago) and filled the bottom of the vase with rocks. Nice to have a counter-balance to my big, heavy stem of lilies! Thumbs up

Hi Angie! Arrrrrggg, roofers. Those little rocks are handy (and popular with granddaughters, too ). Good use for them.

Hello everyone, I found my way here also. Guess I will just add a lily that was blooming today to keep things going.

What a beautiful combo, Pam! Love those co-ops of yours! If anyone hasn't checked out Pam's (Woodthrush) co-ops, please do. I highly recommend them.

Hey Pam, did you get the new Walters catalogue? My gosh that's huge.


Love Orange County and Blackout!!!!!!

Here is two of my lilies. I don't know what kind they are.
Can you tell me why the leaves are dying on the lily in the left photo. Oops, I see I broke one of the petals off. The lily to the left of it is nice and healthy looking.

Yes I did. It's beautiful, but they should have stayed with the disc like last year and keep the prices lower - lol. I hate that Proven Winner program. What a waste.

Lynn, is it possible that one lily is sitting in a low lying area, and got quite wet? That's one of the common things that affects lily leaves. It could also be disease, but in your area, where it is quite wet, too much water is often the problem.

We have a very expert lily grower from Oregon, Pardilinum, and I hope she will come over here soon.

Pam, I think the PW program is a waste too. I haven't looked yet to see how much the prices went up. Hopefully not too much. I need some quality time with that catalogue.

I don't think it's very 'green' of Proven Winners to force you to buy a plastic pot, and pay freight for the pots, in addition to paying a royalty and buying the royalty tag.
