More Lilies!

Standard

“Black” ones…


…yellow ones…


…orange and red ones…


…yellow and red ones…


…and one teeny tiny white and pink one. 

All the multi-coloured ones are Aldi “pixels mix,” so I had no idea what would come up. 

Now for scale!


Very different in heights! The tall one is the yellow and red spotted.


Most of this massively overgrown mess is black lilies, but there are red ones with black spots in there also – and the one wee white and pink one I only found today, hidden in the back. Including the pot, the tallest one is just about 5ft or 1.5m tall.

Lilies!!!

Standard

Okay, so only two pictures. But its’s early days yet, so not many out!


I call this my black lily – of course it isn’t black at all. I have oodles of these, all in pots. They are so tall! 


Second year for these guys. Also very tall, but foliage-wise they are skinnier and less leafy than the ‘black’ ones. 


And a bit raggedy-looking this year. Something’s been at them.

More to come, I see lots of lilies with closed blooms are changing from green to red or pink or yellow or just darker over all – I have a lot of lilies and forget what colours they all are until they open. Surprises for me, every year!
