I discovered Flower Friday last year while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and have been having a blast sharing some flower pictures and information. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!
Today’s Flower is:
I’m assuming that these are Asiatic and not hybrids because they are very short and never get above 2-3 feet. I believe mine are maroon and pink, although the maroon almost look purple.
I adore this lily because they last fairly long and come back every year with more.
It’s recommended that you fertilize in the spring, but what we do is leave leaf mulch and natural matter around the plants and they seem to do just fine.
I couldn’t resist and had to cut some for a bouquet. They do wonderful in bouquets and last over a week.
