Wordless Wednesday: Black Eye Lily

This is the black eye lily I planted on Feb. 5 2016. February 5 is my dad's birthday. These are Asiatic hybrid lilies and I plant the bulbs/corms in containers. That way the gophers don't eat the bulbs and the plants have excellent drainage and when they are not in bloom I can move them to an out of the way area of our garden.

That is so pretty! I like your tip on how you plant it. We have had these disappear, so I think it's a good idea to try!

Ooooo, these are pretty, Terra. And how special that you planted them on your dad's birthday. I had daisies planted in my back yard around mother's day, and they did not do well, so I got some purple flowers at the nursery today. We'll see how they do.

Wow, those lilies are stunning, Terra. I've never seen ones with that colouring before. I've got asiatic lilies in pots here too, they're the bright orange ones.
