This is the first flower we've had on this Orient-Pet 'Robert Swanson', purchased from Club Creek Bulb Farm in May 2014.
The color really stands out in the rather parched landscape at present!
On the shady side of the house one of the original "O-T" hybrids (actually between Lilium henryi and L. speciosum, I believe) Lilium 'Black Beauty' is in bloom,
We started the year with these Oriental-Trumpet (Orient-Pet, or O-T) lilium hybrids and they are already in bloom again!
