I am on a holiday in Fargo ND and travelling down to Minneapolis and wanted to know if anyone knew of any nurseries, gardens, commercial or otherwise that have lilies which would be good to visit. I am from New Zealand where the seasons are opposite so I am not sure what lilies are in flower at the moment. Orienpets? Auratums and Orientals? I am just really keen to see different varieties which are grown in different areas. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Yes, orientpets, aurelians and orientals are blooming now. My auratums bloomed a bit earlier. But except for the orientals, I think, most are at their end. At least they are at my house. I don't have any straight oriental hybrids, and L. speciosum won't be blooming for weeks. I had a meeting with the Minnesota arboretum interim director a couple days ago, and there is not much in bloom in the lily beds their. But at the arboretum, there are all kinds of things to look at. I'll treemail you with our local lily society president's email. I really don't know which members grow what, but she will have a much better idea, and might have some good insight.

Hello and Welcome! to NGA, Kate!

I'm sorry I cannot help you with the required information, but I wish you a wonderful "Lilium Tour" in the USA! Have a great time in the Northern Hemisphere!
