I love all the St Josephs Lilies I have flowering in the garden right now. My favourite bulb planting, the Asiatic and Longifolium Lilies have more than delivered and this little area of the garden is a mass of flowers. I had intended to cut these for indoor use but they look so stunning in the garden I can’t bring myself to to take the scissors to them. There are two Lilies that are as tall as I am, tucked behind the tree. It is as if they are growing taller so they can bend and curl around the tree and mix with the crowd in front. The result is a fabulous view of Lilies from all angles of the bed.

Of all the bulbs I planted, these are by far my favourites and I will expand on this collection next year. I’m pretty sure I didn’t order the yellow ones – I suspect they were in the “free” pack I was given, but I love the burst of yellow in and amongst all the white. I think it works rather well. And the foliage before and after blooms? not bad at all. I rather like the tall stems and the waxy rich green leaves. Planted in and around the Azaleas, it’s worked well as the Asiatic Lilies started blooming as the Azaleas finished their show, and the Longifolium Lilies started blooming as the Asiasitcs finished theirs. Works for me!

Isn’t Spring a wonderful thing?
