|I'm slow getting round to this, but here's a start to some show pics.|
The winner, a Joe Hoell lily grown by Brian and Edna Hardy, the reverse cross that produced Leslie Woodriff:
Not great quality pics, sorry. I was in too much of a rush. Just wanted to hear the wonderful Judith speak.

|Some Trumpet stems. There were many lovely trumpets - I wish I had photographed more. Unfortunately I didn't take in any of the details of whose these were or what their breeding was.|

|What is the name of the trumpet in the last series, second one down on the right? It is gorgeous.|

|That one sure caught my eye too. Keep in mind these could be unnamed seedlings that are not available on the market.|

|Yes, I sort of wondered if that was the case|

|Always remember that seeds make almost anything possible |

|It's almost certainly a seedling. The northwest growers are prolific and talented trumpet breeders. Various breeders contribute seed to the NWTLS seed bank, hence it's available to other members and to show visitors. Judith took some back with her to the US.|
I'll see what single trumpet flower pics I have to post.

|Good stuff Della! I really like that green throated one.|

I have more pics to post, but didn't get round to them today. Hopefully tomorrow!

Some aurelian/henryi-things odds and ends:
...with the not aurelian-at-all L. lijiangense and L. wardii in the midst.

|Wow Della, love those extended black nectaries on the lijiangense and the wardii. That is a very interesting lijiangense too. I've never really seen one with all that brownish spotting. I have seeds waiting to germinate of each now too!|

|I notice that the Tasmanian shows tend to center on trumpet types. I imagine that is because that's what is putting on the best show at that time of year (?). The Minnesota lily show is heavy on asiatics for the same reason. Thanks for the pics, Della.|
A word about the species pics:
---- The Lilium callosum is just opening. A mature flower often has all tepals reflexed so strongly that they curl in on themselves. Color for the species is variable, but the dusky hue and flat sheen (both of which become more noticeable as the flower matures) are the normal species traits.
---- The strongly reflexed tepals of Lilium lijiangense most commonly curl into themselves also. In Lilium wardii also, but necessarily as prevalent.

|Good luck with your seeds, Joe! I have a few second year seedlings of L. lijiangense and I'm hoping they like me enough to come up next year and bloom. I'm ignoring them. Hopefully they're like cats and decide to get my attention. |
Image capture + winter = cool edit!
Yep, the Tasmanian shows are later than the bulk of asiatics, so that has an influence. Most of my lilies peak around mid-december, but because of Christmas, no one wants to hold a show then, so there are alot of lilies we never see on the benches. Mind you, asiatic specialists are in the minority here. Trumpets, aurelians and orienpets are the most popular subjects with most of our best growers and breeders. The deep red soils of the northwest grow some tremendous big lilies.
That said, it was a later season than usual for the asiatics this year. Not late enough for me to get the good ones on the bench, but there were a good few at Burnie. I'll put up some pics later.
edit: I should add, we've struggled to grow martagons well here, but a few growers are trying and making progress. There has been at least one amazing martagon stem I've seen benched at Burnie, but didn't note any this year.
