Patricia’s Pride Asiatic Lily

 

Patricia's Pride Asiatic Lily

A week or so ago I shared the photos of a container that I was growing some Asiatic Lily bulbs that had been sent to me to try by McFayden Seed of Brandon Manitoba.   The Chipmunk did uproot one of the bulbs and I had to put a cage around the second to keep it from destroying that one too.   This week the Lily bloomed and I wanted to share it with you.  It is quite spectacular.  So far no lily beetles have attacked it either. 

I am sharing this colourboard with Kim Klassen Café.   Kim asked us to send our recent favourite photo and I this one qualifies.

What a beautiful lily. None of mine is yet blooming, but I can see that any day I'll be awash in colour in the back bed. The little red bugs don't seem to attack my lilies here as they did in Ontario.

That's a gorgeous one, Valerie. I'm not usually a big fan of asiatic lilies, but the colouring on this one could make me one.

Beautiful and I love the colour scheme. Our weather is so poor in the UK at the moment all my poor plants are looking very soggy .
