I couldn't grow this

We have some cut flowers in the house right now, and this lily caught my eye.



It also caught my nose -- I'm not fond of the fragrance -- but that's not what I'm going to talk about today.

Actually, I'm not going to talk at all.












Beautiful, strange, and exotic. I could never grow this.

As Lucy said, I bet you could, too!

If it is a true lily, you can usually stick the stem into the ground, and it will form bulbils and turn into viable plants. It has worked for me usuing both asiatic and trumpet lilies.

You could definately grow a stargazer lily -at least that's what it looks like (and I don't like the fragrance either) - just watch out for the red beetles! I used to have beautiful casablanca lilies years ago but didn't bother after red beetles demolished them. I am a big fan of daylilies now :)

I can't get my lilies to blossom so I'm not going to say anything much except that those are great macro shots!

Thanks for the encouragement, but I should have been more specific (I was rushed in getting the post together). What I meant to say was that I couldn't grow something so pristine. Yes I could probably grow this lily, but would never get such a clean blossom harvested. Maybe. Chances are it would end up as deer calories.
