I’ve grown many lilies in my yard, but never had one with this coloring. I planted a new batch of lilies 2 years ago. This was a part of that batch. These did not appear last summer and this color was not among the ones I purchased. So, either someone dropped a different bulb in my box or this is a mutant. In any case, it was an unusual color for me.
Ants love the peony. For them, it is like crawling in sugar.
With this winter not as harsh as the last 2, I am optimistic that tulips will be even more beautiful this spring.
