Hello and welcome! I just had to show off this lily. I got the seeds from Bali two years ago and planted them. They are very easy to grow. I was hoping for some blooms this second year and boy am I getting bunches of them now!

Beautiful lily and all the other flowers. That Bali grows good seed.
Nice to see your display of MG's. Gorgeous.

Thanks guys!


Iím so proud of them, they are the first lilies Iíve ever grown from seed. So far no fragrance, but then they are only two years old, plus Iíve got tons of buds on most of them, actually it looks like every single plant is going to bloom, Iíve got about 15 of them so far. You can bet my nose will be in all of them!

I planted them in fall so they would have a nice long chilly sleep, but I did put more lily seeds in this spring and they are up nicely.

That said I planted them in one of my raised baby beds which has about two feet of great soil to give them a good start. I have planted lily seeds throughout the yard with no luck in the past, but Iím always fighting this clay soil.

RC you should get some of these lily seeds, Iíve got a feeling they will do great for you also! Bali's seeds and plants are always awesome

Yea, Iím quite fond of the mgís and I get better every year at growing them. Itís wonderful to get up every morning and see all the new blooms, which are different every day. It's a wonderful way to start the day!

Wow that is strange, mine look like a combination of the silk road and easter lily. I wonder if you had some cross breeding going on or these could well be a throwback. It will also be interesting to see if they change as they get older.

Gayla of course you are welcome to as many mgís as you would like. Iíll have a complete listing with pics most likely by the end of this month, Iím just now starting to collect seeds from them. But if you see some from the pics I have so far just let me know and Iíll start setting them aside for you.

Lilium Silk Road
An Orienpet Lily with huge, 8in flowers, intoxicatingly fragrant and borne on spires up to 2ft across for longer than you thought possible. Winner of the North American Lily Society's popularity poll for four straight years.

Stunningly beautiful Orienpet Lilies are hybrids between Oriental and Trumpet Lilies. We will continue to offer more varieties as they become available from Holland and the West Coast. Orienpets combine the best features of both groups of Liliesófragrance, large flowers, and sturdy garden performanceóbut bloom about two weeks earlier than most Orientals. The advantage is an almost continuous sequence of Lily blooms, if you start with Asiatic varieties, then follow with Trumpets, Orienpets, and Orientals.

Lilies are one of the truly great garden plants. Their beauty, diversity, extended season of bloom, exquisite fragrance, graceful stature, and reliable disposition reflect the fruits of hundreds of years of selective breeding. Your garden should not be without them, whether you manage acres of mixed borders or a few pots on a city balcony. Lilies prefer cool soil, which argues for shade at their feet from low-growing companions such as Ferns, Geraniums, or Hellebores. Shipped as bulbs.

OMG, how exciting Bali, they could truly be a throwback then to the trumpet lilys. I'll have to see if I can find any that look like them.
