Easter Lilies in June

While mentioning lilies, I must comment on how reliable and lovely these Easter lilies ((Lilium longiflorum) are that were a gift a few years ago, blooming in the garden. Next Easter I think I will buy a bunch that are in bloom for holiday decorations and then retire them to the garden to add to the show in the Moonlight Garden for years to come. And maybe the year after that and the year after that until I have a whole garden full of them!

I've seen others with these lilies in their gardens. They are beautiful! I never knew you could put these kind in the garden, but now that I'm seeing them done that way, I'm going to give it a try! Yours are spectacular!

I am so glad to read these are reliable for you. I bought a new hybrid lily 'Lankon' containing this parentage, vaguely remembering the Easter Lily naturalizes in So. Calif, and thinking it would be a safe bet. We'll see!
