|So, let's talk lilies! We can talk about anything related to lilies. I have made a special forum for general discussions, one for growing lilies, and one for hybridizing lilies. Anyone is free to start any threads they wish in those forums. There is also a forum to introduce yourself, and I hope everyone will.|
If anyone wants any other forums, just let me know.
Let's keep it clean, and treat everyone nicely. Other than that, c'mon in and let's talk lilies!

|Nice to see a lilies cubit Polly. I am finally adding a few new ones this year after struggling with the red lily leaf beetle. Having figured out how to deal with the red devils I am going to try a few new ones and can't wait to get going this spring.|

|Hi Patti, I have not yet had to deal with the lily beetles, but they are west of us, and east of us, so I expect to soon. I'll be watching for them this year. |
Glad to hear you're going to try again.

i posted an album of the lilies that are growing here now. Some are NOID's but members have been kind and id'd one or two mysteries.
I just added to the lily family in my 2 yearold gardens.
Last October I added
Rosellas Dream Rosepoint Lace
This spring I will add
I actually added up the varieties I have nd there re iver 70.
Its probably just a start for some of you, but thats it for me.

|Our Iowa Regional Lily Society has 2 lily sales a year. We buy wholesale & then sell at fantastic prices to the members--public gets leftovers. We offered 61 cultivars last fall & 31 this sping. Llilyfan Sue & i get the joy of picking them out. How can I NOT add more??? I'm over 200 varieties now. It's fun being an enabler.|

|Speaking of IRLS' spring sale.. When are we going to pack lilies for it? :)|
Feb 4, 2010 8:54 AM CST
|How about Sunday March 14 from 1-3:30 pm? Looks like at least 1000 bulbs to pack so far. Sue is threatening to come --she suspects we have waaay too much fun at our CR packing party.|

|There is nothing like the smell of packing lilies! Too bad there wasn't a scratch and sniff we could create to mock that smell when we miss that lily bulb smell. I would package Buggy Crazy's bulb smell, it must be accentuated with the saw dust she puts in there. Mmmmmmm, I can almost smell packing day now ;)|
