NOID I received in a gift basket several years ago and still one of my favorites.

Seems like all the dark ones opened at once, but my very first Lily was a NOID yellow I got off a Lowe's clearance rack for $0.50 a pot (bought six pots!). Moved them to various places last year and wasn't sure how well they would do. Have one about to open. Lovey dubby

I have Conca 'd Or, Elodie, Sunny Okinawa, Anika, and some NOIDS in bud. Be fun if most opened at the same time. Smiling

Fantastic, Debra! It's started!! Hurray!

I adore Tiny Padhye - it did really well for me - and love Lollipop, but haven't seen it in years. I lost it a long time ago during a move. Beautiful. Enjoy your lilies! Thumbs up

Tiny Sin has a tiny...um, something. Look at how this bud opened. Cute, but odd for the flower. Big Grin

Susan, they are spectacular in a group. I am hoping I didn't mess up too badly by moving them, but they were in an awkward place and would sometimes be broken off.
Can't find the photo showing all of them togeether, just this one.

Beautiful, beautiful!!
You are all way ahead of me here in Wisconsin zone 5a. Lilies are up quite nicely. Waiting for buds. Hopefully the deer leave them alone this year. They ate the buds off of two bunches of lilies last year. Angry
I just got bulbs in the mail today for six new ones that I will plant tomorrow. Smiling

When they open, I should know what at least one of these is, but they are unknowns at this point.

This one was my first to open about two weeks ago. A NoID LA:

It was supposed to be trumpet lily Pink Perfection, I guess the company figured I would know the difference. It looks a lot like LA Kiss Me Kate but the color of the stigma is not right. What I like best about it is it multiplies like crazy and has stuck around for many years, unlike many of my lilies.

I like that Noid as well Connie. For an LA the buds look very longiflorum influenced.

I've always liked the "plain" yellows as they clump up. Who needs a lily tree when you can have a lily shrub?

I've used the "Tiny" series potted on my porch. Once the bloom is over just stop by Lowes and see if they have a fresh shipment of budded up Asiatics for replacement. Our local store ships them in like that clear into September. Cost wise it's no more expensive than some of the annuals for an entirely different look. Can't change out colors with annuals.

And again some of those -mart stores slash the prices to next to nothing once they've bloomed out. Might match the tag, might not? Sticking tongue out
