Flower #139

Flower 139

I believe that this is a lily plant of some sort. It is something that we purchased a couple years ago and is finally doing well in the back yard. One of the more colorful flower that grows out back and one of the strongest fragrances two. It’s is simply just lovely to have!

  1. This is a ‘ turk’s cap ‘ lily. So called because it resembles the shape of a large turban. They are spectacular and beautiful even while they are opening up. Yours is very beautiful and so is your capture.

    We used to call them ‘tiger lilies’

  3. Note to myself: must look for Lilium martagon turban lily. In German garden’s it is quite forgotten and never seen in gardening centers, so after your article of September 25 2014 ‘Some Lily Today’ you inspired me again for my own gardening. I will look for the bulbs soonยฐ ๐Ÿ™‚

      I hope by now you have fond some bulbs to plant. They have such a wonderful sent to themselves and would add to a garden. Mine garden is quit humble, but I’m glad that you are enjoying the images I’m getting from it. Good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Thank you! After the first bulbs for next year’s bloom are available in the local shops now, but not this lily, I think, I must search for it by online-shopping.
        The other, the colourful Lilium section Sinomartagon-Mix is still in bloom, spreading its magical scents even more than 50 mtrs. around.

        I think a lot of the bulbs I get come from on line at Old House Gardens. I’m sure if they ship abroad but it is worth taking a look I think. You can find them at OldHouseGardens.com. They have a great many varieties of heirloom bulbs. The Tiger Lily I have came from them and the Black Beauty Lily. I think they are out of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Hope this can help or give you more options, enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I will have a look for these, thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚
