Two years ago there were no lilies at all in my garden. I thought that they looked too much like plastic flowers you would buy at Zellers. But I have become a big time convert. These incredibly hardy, disease free flowers bloom in late July when there is hardly any colour at all in Edmonton gardens. And my goodness, do they add flourescent colour! Since they have no competition for insects at this time of the year, it’s hard to know what it is that they are trying to attract with these spectacular blooms. I have never seen an insect come near them.
