This lily is taller than I. I purchased the bulbs at Rink's, our local flea market several years ago, and each year, it gets taller and taller. Close up, it smells a bit like a stargazer.
I bought this lily from "The Lily Lady" at The Farmer's Market in Boone years ago. The last few times I've been to the market, she hasn't been around. She always had good, healthy plants.
Also from The Lily Lady in Boone. This plant produces huge, sturdy flowers.
Transplanted by Sam years ago, a row of these wild lilies comes up every year in the side gardens. I think of him when they bloom and smile.
