Oooh, I wish that would "just appear" in my yard. It's truly stunning.

Thank you Smits! Into the Os then, lol!

And thank you Peggy, I am a horrendously disorganized gardener, a lot of stuff dissapears, then reappears. When I retire, I plan on being more organized... :lol:

I would like that to just appear in my garden too!!! Only it was a sad year for lilies....because of the hot dry, they came out and went in no time at all....not nearly the size they should have been and the colours were all pale......

However, I did manage to stay on top of the lily beetles and there was very little damage!

Great ID Smitty!! I have them in my garden. Love them!! I seem to have developed a fondness for the doubles. The lily beetle seems to leave them alone 8)

Katharine, are they growing in full sun, or can they tolerate some shade? I've never seen these double flowers but would certainly like to have some.

Clyde 212 says the lily beetles don't attack them, and I do notice the leaves on yours seem to be untouched.
