Thanks Rick. I had indeed noticed the edge on #50 (and just corrected my post - typed sepals instead of petals). It seems to be only present on the lower half of the petals, not anywhere else. But will be interesting to see if I can get this trait to appearance in some offspring in a few years' time.

Hilarious! I can't take credit for picking the parents, Rick, but I sure am enjoying growing the babies!

Thanks for all the thumbs and acorns guys!

Sooooo... must be time for a new thread. I have some special pics to start the year. If these are a health hazard, look out for the next one! nodding

The new year makes me feel really, really late posting these but...

Red Velvet. I counted 44 buds on the largest stem.


'Valverde'. The previous picture in the database is very different from mine. I'm however confident that mine is correctly identified as it matches other photos found online.


Progress report 'Zambesi', 2015 and 2016 (2016 looks horrible in the square crop thumbnail, really hates how the software cuts these sometimes)

These stand in the rain-shadow of a huge pine and near a climbing rose, but still develops okay with regular watering. Actually very difficult to get most things to grow at the back of this garden as they will become dwarf plants. Some of these OT lilies are incredibly robust plants!


Progress report 'Robina' 2015 and 2016.


'Solution'

I have some problems with some of the Orientals in this bed as some have rotted, might be a case of fusarium. Solution is still okay but some of the other went missing with suspicious small shoots coming up. Normally I don't have problems with lily bulbs rotting in my sandy, alkaline soil, but I planted these in a peat based soil(actually there used to grow a rhododendron in that spot) and I had some problems. Probably never should have mulched that area D'Oh! . Anyway I think I'll just ignore the problems and see how long they last as they are isolated from other lilies.

Many thanks for the nice comments Smiling Smiling Smiling

Paul, I suppose the magic brew for the lilies was just plain old rainwater in the previous growing season, 2015.

It was a great year for many plants. Basically it was coldish with frequent rain until the middle of July. People were freezing and of course if you have clay soil the rain was causing problems, but here on the dry sands it was awesome!

Then we had some warmth and finished of with an exceptionally long and frost free autumn. So almost everything grew exceptionally well and without drought related stress. Then the warmth was enough to ripe even the butternut squashes that aren't totally 100% foolproof in our colder summer climate. I believe many of the lily bulbs bulked up in a similar fashion.

They made me smile. I remember there was a Judith Freeman tango involved in these, but I forget the name. *Blush*

Big Bang! I remember. I knew it was something cosmic. Smiling

Checking my records here... it was (Citronella x Latvia) X Big Bang.

Thanks for posting,Della! They sure produced a variety of background colors and amounts of spotting. I didn't start that lot of seeds myself so it is good to know how they turned out for you!

Thanks for the seed! I think I'll be keeping a few of these around. Wiliam's right, they make a great garden bouquet. Smiling

I have some more of your baby pics to sort and post. (Any day now Sticking tongue out )
