Wordless Wednesday Broken Heart Lily

This is the Asiatic Hybrid Lily "Broken Heart" which I planted this week. The photo is from Wayside Gardens which sells them.
I put her in a huge pot with one "Black Eye" lily bulb and look forward to their show later this year.
I didn't realize until I planted them that "Broken Heart" and "Black Eye" sound like a cry for help!
Black Eye is pretty, the center is black and the outer half of the petals is white. So I look forward to seeing them in bloom together, pink, black and white.

Although a little sad the combination sounds...I know they will look beautiful sharing the same pot! I can't wait to see them in bloom.

Lovely lily. Interesting names for both of them. Must look up to see why they are called those names, if I can find it.

I rather like the thought of planting pot combinations with coded messages, my sense of the dramatic would be tempted!

Oh this pink lily is so pretty, Terra. I've only seen the white lilies before. Such a pretty soft color. The pink blossom trees are blooming already here, so I think spring is coming soon. :)

Have a terrific rest of the week.
