Early Blooming Asiatic Lilies

I must admit I was a bit surprised to see these Asiatic lilies blooming already this year in my SJC garden. They bloom much later in the season in Laguna.


I never met a bulb I didn't like and these are no exception! They are like packages that come in the mail unexpectedly. You forget all about them and then one day they just show up with their happy blooms. These ones are very carefree and easy. I've planted almost a hundred more lilies this year, after a trip to a garden show. They are mostly Stargazers and Casa Blancas and I can hardly wait for the 'packages' to arrive!
