Dunno for sure, but these were both potted plants that were either left in the pot for a couple of years (cranberry), or were in bad shape when I bought them (yellow). I think they are pretty tough. Smiling

You can pot them whenever you need to ~ try to keep the soil around the roots intact and they ought to be fine.
Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?

So nice to view beautiful blooms already. I'm pretty far off, though working my tail off weeding. Is that chore ever over?? Thank you for sharing your pretties.

I have a few Asiatics getting buds, but most will be quite awhile, but that's OK.

No, Mags, you will never stop weeding.

Claudia, do you have a picture you can show us? I don't recall seeing you on this forum before, so welcome, welcome!

I have Commander-In-Chief blooming and it is gorgeous! The color is a much darker red than what the camera could capture. I love it!

Second one is NOID....but it is so cheery and looks so tropical to me! Would love to figure out who it is!

Commander In Chief is so pretty and bright. Like the other one too. It does look tropical, like a tropical sunset.

Looks a lot like L. dauricum (fuzzy bud and all). It can be quite variable, I believe.

Wow! Looking good Moby. Still pretty far off from anything here. It's weird, the early spring got things going, but it was really halted with the cold. Almost as if they paused for a couple weeks in there and are now just getting going again with the recent warm weather.

Your lilies are beautiful.

Thank goodness for the cooler weather of late. We started out with spring bulbs being about 5 weeks early, irises and peonies at about 4 weeks and now we're at 3 weeks early for the lilies. Going to be an awfuly long summer.

Very nice Moby!! I said the same thing about summer. It has been warm for so long already and things are blooming so early. I dread July and August!! Blinking
