What do you think is the most beautiful species of lily in the world? Someone said a long time ago that the most beautiful lily is the one that is just blooming and that is true. In the sea of beautiful lilies it is very difficult to choose your favorite. However, there are not so many wild lilies and choosing the most beautiful one is less of a problem than with hybrids. Choose in order 5 of the most beautiful species lilies according to you. The most important characteristic of beauty in this case is the flower and its shape, color or combination of colors. You can also fit the look of the whole lily (stem, leaves, etc.) into it.
It doesn't matter if you grew that lily or not. At this link you have pictures of most species of lilies and their cultivars but also you can find more on the internet if you need.
- some variations are inaccurate and are no longer called that, so use only the main type. For example, lilium speciosum has a lot of variation, but regardless of that you only write lilium speciosum. In an additional explanation, you can add a variation that you particularly like (eg lilium speciosum (especially var. Gloriosoides).
Scoring system: from 5 to 1 point. So the lily that is first on your list gets 5 points, the second gets 4, etc. So choose the order carefully. I know it's hard, but give it a try. You can explain your choice, but it is not obligatory.
Voting will be open until 30.9. so that as many people as possible could vote.
