Red Hot Mama (Lilies for Rockin’ the Rocky Mountain Garden)

A few years back, during a Garden Bloggers’ Fling adventure in Buffalo (Garden City USA by anyone’s count), I fell head over heels for the gorgeous lily, Scheherezade. An “Orientpet,” its the best of two different types of lilies, the lovely Asiatics and the beloved Trumpets (think Easter). Seemed like every other garden in Buff was sporting a huge planting of these. I couldn’t take my eyes off them. Scheherazade lily and fallopia

You know where this is going:  I ordered up several of these, and a few more. Just to set the pace. From the sublime Scherezade, I somehow drifted right over into the hot red category. We’ll see how it grows.
