Found your great forum looking for id photos of Lilium bulbs.
Nice to see other passionate growers.
Also, would anyone here know of a current source for an asiatic by Fellner called 'Baby Pink Bells'?
I have desired this one for years but it seems to be rarely sold.

Hi Brian and a big welcome to you! Valley K in Canada may have Baby Pink Bells when they update their online catalog. They feature Fellner lilies (and other hybridizers).

I don't grow that one but maybe others here have it. If so, you might try mooching a bulblet or scale from it.

Hi Brian

I got some from [url=www.parkland-perennials.com]www.parkland-perennials.com[/url] Last fall. I don't know if they will have any this spring as the website is still under construction.
Welcome to the Lily forum, I'm a newbie here too.

Hi Brian. Welcome!

Thanks all.
So I'm still kind of 'waiting for the catalog'
Fingers crossed that where and ever Baby Pink Bells might come from they also have my final want this season.
Should be easy to get a Lady Alice but both in one order, well we will see.

Hi Brian: Welcome! And I've got a lily or two growing around here too. I'm pretty low seniority around here myself, but in the short time I've been here I've found the regular participants are the most knowledgable, friendly, and devoted to the hobby of lilium growing I've ever encountered!

An acquaintance of mine in California tells me that Trumpets, Aurelians and Asiatics do better for him (than Orientals, etc.) Have you ever noticed that? He lives in Stevinson, a little southeast of San Fran. Just curious.

Cheers--to many happy future threads and posts!!

Well, Lorn, I'm on a valley floor here, 16-120°F, placement is key. I grow my tomato plants in 50% shade July-Sept, or else. Lost a few lilies years ago when winters brought heavy rains to marry early ignorance of perfect drainage ie placement again, rotted bulbs.
Rick, I bow down... dude... What a service you are providing. I'm waiting on a shipment of 300 mixed lily bulbs, should be @ 10% species. Your photos and text have given me a lot of things to look at the next chance I get to fondle some bulbs. You are loading these into the database, yes?
And thanks all for the welcome!

Brian, don't be bashful about taking a few bulb scales from your incoming bulb shipment. Even if they are just accidentally broken off, they can still be good propagation material. The scale bulblets in that thread were initiated and grown just by placing the scales in a 3x4 inch ziplock baggy with a barely moist paper towel, left on the kitchen counter (not in the dark) at about 60-65F. They were removed from the mother bulb with scaling in mind, so were broken off very close to the basal plate. It seems martagons tend to do better at cooler temps. Normally, I would scale propagate at 65-70+ F. Also normally, I use a medium of sphagnum moss and perlite.

I think it was Polly Pard who suggested I put the bulb photos in the data base. At the time, I didn't see a way to explain anything, thinking that if the bulb was the only photo in the data base for the species, viewers might think they were meant to be eaten. (Well actually, they are edible; but that is a another story.) So anyway, none are in the data base. I see now the comment area can be used with adequacy. Where a flower is already entered in addition, I might rethink my reservations about adding bulb pics.

Yesterday my son's mother in law arrived from Beijing and for the first time visited my home today. I have been very busy starting lily seeds and have seeded baggies all over the place... in the bathroom, on the end tables, on the kitchen table, and on any other horizontal surface where there is room.

She doesn't speak English and I don't speak Mandarin (though I am trying to learn some basics). My daughter in law (who speaks perfect English) interprets. Anyway, I told her I was planting lily seeds in all of the baggies; she seemed quite impressed! Then I flung open the patio door and kind of waved my arm towards my shaggy, soggy backyard gardens and told her I grow my vegetables "out there" in the summer. I showed her my florescent light setup and the few things I had going there. Again very impressed, especially after she nibbled on a bit of arugula I had under the lights. A while later after they left, I got to wondering.... did she think I was growing all those lilies for food? Confused Confused Hilarious! .

Lefty, I think you should put your bulb photos in the database. I believe the food focus of Asians is on L. davidii and L. lancifolium, at least that is what I have read.
