Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Zone 3
-30 C to +30 C (rarely!); elevation ~1130m; annual precipitation ~40 cm
always good to try again...
This is an un-named hybrid from the Cornell breeding program. I wonder what the ones they KEPT look like!
Yes, thankfully, no lily beetles.
Rick Rodich zone 4a. Annual precipitation ~24 inches
near Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
That's a heck of a lily, Michael! The flowers are enormous, and numerous, and it must be, what, seven or eight feet tall?!
Stunning Lily Michael .
Rick We have just gone through an unseasonal 5 weeks of dry warm weather with the temps about the mid 20s celsius.
However it is back to 'business as usual' with today being sunny 21C--a front coming through tomorrow 16C with hail ,squally showers :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
Thankfully no lily beetles here either ,(never heard of them being in New Zealand ).
Here's a close up of the back of what i have raised as L.wardii....

Thank you, but I can't take ownership of the lily. It's Judith's. The plant is indeed about 7.5 feet tall. I hope to get offsets this spring. Perhaps, I'll get around to scaling it. I don't remember if it has fragrance and that may be why Cornell passed on the plant. It may, however, be good for additional breeding for size and color of Orienpets.
Thank you for the assistance posting the photo. It will get easier the more I do it...
We've had a few lilies come through our summer so far!Lilium "X-Phi" is a turk's cap Aurelian Hybrid
"Pappo's Beauty" is an Oriental or Orient-pet,
And "Leslie Woodriff" is similar but not as vigorous with us,
Fermi de Sousa,
Central Victoria, Australia
Min: -7C, Max: +40C
A strong, straight stem on that Aurelian, Fermi. And a well spaced inflorescense, too.
Very nice, all of them!
As I don't have lilies yet I have to show one from last year. Which one is it?
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
A very old martagon section lily hybrid from 1921, Mrs. R.O. Backhouse is still one of my favorites.
Lilium martagon 'Claude Shride'. Last season the white strip on the petal backs were much more prominent.
Some martagon seedlings:
A cross of mine involving Lilium tsingtauense. The bud was quite interesting, showing tips of bright orange, but the flower, though nice, is not what I anticipated. The flower is unusually flat for this type of lily.
Lilium 'Brotsing', another martagon section hybrid, is quite large and has white buds.
