I was just thinking of

of all the lilies that I planted for this year a few of them are stand out as far as blooms and also for length of blooming as well....

Regale was the first one that bloomed and bloomed and latest quite long but then it was cooler out there

Lankon is by far the longest blooming of all the lilies. and also the one that I love the smell the most too. Still have some Lankon blooming in the hot weather here. Truly a stand out lily for sure....

I am waiting on the Edge to bloom...........but the amount of blooms per bulb for an oriental surprised me.. Lots of buds on each plant for a first year.....

so all and all Lankon is the best performer all around here so far..

waiting on Leslie Woodriff to bloom was the first one of the lilies up and will be one of the last to bloom here..........lots of buds and has great height too.

any favourite performers you like??

My Salmon Star has not bloomed yet but wow they are beautiful by the looks of yours there......

Kirsha Maya is turning out to a big surprise here and truly is one of the standouts as well

Pink Brilliant had the largest blooms I have seen. It actually has a long bloom time as well compared to some of the other lilies

as it turned out the Edge has bloomed since this thread and I am not all that impressed with it to be honest

Casa blanca is blooming right now and they always LOOK good and Stand out in the garden as well........
