Flora Pleno lily, a party in a bulb.

Thanks to Elizabeth Licata of Gardening While Intoxicated and Garden Rant, oh, and Buffa10, for insisting I plant Flora Plena lilies in my garden. I love them so much, I am thinking of dedicating an entire chunk of my garden to them. They really do well with shade in the afternoon, particularly here in Boise where it is smokin’ hot. Right now, they are planted on the top of a retaining wall, where I can walk by and look up at their flouncy blooms.

Headed over now to order some more. Wouldn’t it be a miracle if , between now and September, I had a place all sited and prepared for them? Ha.
