Here are some of my best Western American lily seedlings from this year, after 3 years here I am finally getting blooms, but new neighbors have made this place HELL and the lilies are dying of neglect. There are not many new coming after this, most of the new seedlings in propagation were lost last year when the evil neighbors kept me from going outside. I have been looking for 6 - 7 months there is NOWHERE to go, it's an insane sellers market due to the huge amt of people trying to escape that hellhole Portland, or has become.

This is most special because it is white and there is NO white in its ancestry, but it bloomed during the historic hellish heat wave which can bleach out pink so i suspect it will normally be pale pink.

I call this one Burnt Orange, not a good pix and not a vigorous plant so it may not survive.

I am working on trumpet seedlings now, all hybrids of Awesome, and a few OT hybrids and very few orientals. I hope to post some pix soon, the weather is going to turn hot again so I guess that makes it easier to work on this evil computer, at least it is cool inside!

Lisa, these are beautiful. You grow them so well too. And they have survived to bloom in all of the heat you've had in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you for sharing. Simply stunning.

The heat here is NOTHING like the heat in that hellhole Spokane, and it cools off at night so the heat is not that many hours per day and there is dew. I am just barely into the coast range so it is 10 degrees cooler than on the other side of the hill. Although these did well in that hellhole Spokane which killed many of the western species and all of the orientals unless they were in the full shade. But they cannot take hot, wet soil so I do not water and there is no mulch anymore so they are dying from hot, cracked soil. And slug invasions into that soil.

These are all simply incredible! And such diversity in such ugly weather.
