Rick, hope the flower colour matches the buds!

My sole martagon lily was damaged by a slug trying to eat through the stemangry

 

The first lily to flower is Lilium lophophorumsmiley

Wow Trond, that's one really cool L. lophophorum.  Am I seeing only four developed petals? 

I have a couple started from seed last year.

It's the 2. spring in my garden. I bought it as a small bulb 2 1/2 years ago.

 

Rick, it has 6 petals, here's a better view I hope. It is a bit tricky to picture:

Lilium hansoni in flower. The foliage and some of the flowers are somewhat damaged by snails.

 

 

It is difficult to take pictures of the plants wagging in the wind and the sunlight is very strong and hard.

"It's difficult to take pictures of the plants wagging in the wind and the sunlight is very strong and hard."

Don't I know it!  Sometimes I will sacrifice picture quality and photograph in the early morning or evening in lower light. 

First to flower for me was an early form of Lilium martagon.  Originally from NARGS seed ex,  I've "decided" these were apomicticly produced.  I have eight different seedlings, and each is the same in every way. 

                    

Then came Lilium szovitsianum.  After growing my first one from seed to bloom after seven years, then losing it to transplanting to a "better" place, I am quite happy that this one has bloomed from seed in just 5 years.  Definitely a smaller plant than my orginal, though.

                    

Then more martagon seedlings

          

 

          

This one had prominent spots showing on the bud
