Welcome to the lily forum on Cubit. We're so happy to have a new forum to post on, and I hope to see many of the old gang here, along with hopefully some new people.

So come on in, it's going to be fun!

Hi Glad to be here.I am buying lilies like they are going out of style.
I mostly like Asiatics right now because they fit so nicely in the DL garden.
I also have some Longiflorums but not many.
This is an area where I am adding other plants to the lilies I planted 2 years ago and last fall.

Thank you Mary, 'Bout time you checked in my fellow lily lover.

If anyone joins this cubit, please post in the introduce yourself area. When we first started we weren't really sure what we were doing, so I think I'm going to make the welcome to lilies a 'sticky' and give some instructions in there.

Hi Kathy, welcome! A newbie, you're in trouble here, you'll be an oldbie for sure with these ladies working on you. I've had lilies for many years, but some of them are new to me, and I'm trying to figure out where to put all of the ones I got pictures of in the OT thread.

Hi Cherie, welcome. It seems a great bunch here, so I think you'll make lots of new friends, plus hopefully see your old ones here. Sharon, Mary (Stormy), and Jo Ann are all active here. Tracey and I are the cubit managers, and we both love new pictures, so let's see lots of your beds. In fact, theres a thread for that. So if you have more pics........

Tree lily, can't remember the name of any of them and all my tags went blank on me. So much for water proof marker paints

Cherie, did you buy those advertised as tree lilies? They are lovely. I remember when the catalogues started selling tree lilies. I think most of them are OT, are they not?

Yes indeed the so advertised "lily trees" marketed by Breck's bulbs are OT lilums (cross hybrid between trumpet and oriental). They for the most part are very strong stemmed lilies, many reaching heights, when mature, of 6 feet or more.

Please do not lean your bike against them, like Brecks shows in one of their pictures. You may lose your "trees" that way. Rolling on the floor laughing

They are beautiful hardy lilies, but "trees", they are not.
