Okay, so I can't really take credit for this one, but it is technically a seedling. This is a cross of 'Tall Boy' with a yellow Aurelian and I obtained it as a young plant last year from @vanozzi. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first flowering.

Yes Josh, that pot contained ''Tall Boy'' un-flowered seedlings, but hang on, keep up, ---you've lost a year Smiling Looks like a strong seedling with a well shaped flower, hope it goes on to have a 60 bloom inflorescence.

Leftwood said:Yes, when I had L. formosanum and the closely related L. philippinense strains that survived my cold winters here in the north, if I dug the bulbs in the fall, some of them would show this trait. They didn't shut down for the winter like most lilies, and would begin sending up a shoot on their own schedule, not waiting to go through winter.

This is L. philippenense (left) and L. formosanum (right), dug in fall (21 October in the northern hemisphere)
Thumb of 2018-01-10/Leftwood/aa6c5a
The left bulb shows the normal seasonal stem and a small underground shoot. This small shoot is never visible on regular lily bulbs at this time of year, because they are waiting to come up next season. But this bulb shoot is not waiting. Similarly, the right bulb has the normal season stem and another smaller stem that emerged in the late summer rather than spring. If my warm season was long enough, I would have had flowers from that in the fall.


The above is a quote from Rick (@Leftwood) from a 2018 post (#1617972). I found it searching for information on L. philippinense, as many of mine are emerging already (and it's only late-January!). To be fair, the winter here has been mild so far - two days of uncharacteristically early frosts in late-October, and another two in mid-January only - but being a La Nina year it has been quite wet. These philippinense never really went dormant at all and are now pushing up new stems. Given the very southerly distribution of their native habitat I suspect in the wild they never go dormant either. Provided I can keep the rabbits off them, and if the mild winter continues, hopefully I will have some early lilies this year! (Seed was planted in December 2019 and one seedling flowered in September 2020.) I'll keep the group informed of progress...

I venture that there are very few true L. philippinense in the horticultural world. That was in my early days of lily growing, 2006, actually. They would get about a foot plus mound of mulch over them for the winter. It didn't stop the soil from freezing, but moderated the temperature for their survival. They were definitely two different forms, but neither philippinense. it was interesting that until the stem bulblets grew stems and not just leaves (for me it didn't happen until the second season and two winters), the foliage was completely evergreen!

Not counting the chickens before they hatch - wanted to show seedling growth of seedlings from Connie's seed. She donated this seed to the NALS seed exchange last year and I ordered the seed and stored it until planting the end of December 2020. These two pots are a bit crowded in 6" pots but growing like crazy. These are purple trumpet crosses. Thanks for donating Connie!

Good luck Patrick! I hope they turn out to be nice trumpets. They are a combination of my three darkest purple trumpets. I found it interesting that my cross (Midnight x Summer Palace) gave all dark purple seedlings but the reciprocal cross gave much lighter shades. I crossed a dark (Midnight x Summer Palace) seedling with a dark Pink Perfection to get the seeds I donated to the exchange. We'll see...

I always find it a crap shoot when I order these purple strains and think I was lucky to get a dark one of each! I don't have room to continue working with them so let us know in a year or two how they turnout!

Beautiful bulb bulk up, Anthony.

A couple seedlings blooming. The dark stem and perfect foliage is a plus on what I have garden named Fellner's Joy (tribute to both parents)

Just flowering for me, seedlings of L. amabile x L. amabile var. luteum (NALS seeds 97-106 from Jim Ault). I have a couple more that will flower shortly. From the looks these will have the yellow (luteum) coloring. The B&D Lilies website notes that: "The golden yellow variant of Lilium amabile is believed to be a recessive mutant of the type. It is reported that this species first appeared in Holland from wild collected seed. Yellow forms crossed within the group will continue producing yellows." I will cross these siblings to get more seeds hopefully in the autumn. I'm undecided whether to try backcrosses from some of my other existing Asiatics hybrids back to these species types. These first-level species crosses look pretty enough to me! I particularly like the yellow form.

I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure the purple trumpet involved Summer Palace.
