Liz, you did a fine job of getting the L's started but too bad we couldn't get your fancy L in there! How is the thumb healing? I hope Lily is treating you well.

Sharon, I had a bit of a panic attack earlier when I saw your
Lilium canadense
. I thought "Oh no, I've orderd the wrong seeds" *WHEW* good to know I didn't.

Kelly, is that Saltarello in the bottom photo? I see Pink Pixie in the top one.

Lots of Lovely L's everyone. Keep them coming.

on her face Joanna!!

and NO that does not help one bit..but since lilies and perennials are easier to work with than annuals ..I apparently have lots of free space..outside the chain link fence that surrounds my front yard about 120 feet long by 3 feet wide :-D



now where did I put that new lilynook catalogue (why does spellcheck say this word is wrong..it isn't is it?) I need a candanese and oh about 50 more .???

Hi Kelly_m, you asked about the conditions my Lewisia is in? According to the label it needs well-drained and not too fertile soil - so I plunked it in the area around my blue spruce's roots that I have exposed with limbing up. That soil is sandy, and not particularly fertile what with a 50 ft tree living in it and all!

Now this was my first year with a Lewisia, so who knows if it likes where it is or our climate. We have been developing a freeze/thaw cycle over the last few years, and snow cover is no longer guaranteed throughout the winter. It is uncovered right now in fact.

I have mulched the area with some cones I gathered from the back yard, as you can see from the photo. I imagine the soil is quite acid at this point!

I got this particular plant as a sale item and figured it was worth a try. I have definitely taken to the colour though!
