Crimson Lily

(Toledo, OH) The flower on your left opened yesterday, and I had forgotten that we planted this stunning crimson-color lily last spring. When the stems appeared a few weeks ago, I thought this was just another of the myriad tiger lilies that I have cultivated around the house.

I thus endeavor to provide more mulch to the plant this fall with an eye toward propagating dozens of these flowers next year. It looks like we will wind up with nine of the dark red blossoms in the next few days, provided the neighbor children do not raid the garden for flowers.
