Pacific BX 14:


From Cathy Craig:

1.  Lilium 'Garden Angel' "Oriental, 3-4 ft,
July. Upfacing flowers on very strong stems. I have had this in  pots and it
has done ok but I can tell it doesn't like it. Have planted the ones I kept
out in a bed and will see how it does next year."

2.  Lilium 'Tinos'
looks more like a hibiscus with a deep red center and golden accent. This is
an asiatic and grows to 3-4 ft. Blooms June. Seems to
offset well. Photo in B&D 2001 catalog pg 65. If I hadn't desperately needed
the space I'd have kept all the smaller bulbs myself. The photo doesn't even
come close to showing how gorgeous and striking this lily is and I can't
explain how the flower texture appears with these markings. Imo, it is the
prettiest lily I grow. Very nice scent. Makes a lot of flowers even when
young. It is a up and outfacing flower. Has been in a pretty dry bed in
pretty heavy soil and done really well. MUST HAVE.
