One of the plants we’ve grown and loved since the early days of JLBG is the amazing Lilium formosanum. We know without looking at a calendar that early/mid August has arrived, when the large fragrant flowers grace the garden, each perched atop 5-7′ tall stalks.
It looks like you don’t even stake them! Pretty amazing for 5-7′ tall, top-heavy stalks. My newly planted ones definitely needed staking, but it is very windy here. We’ll see if they are stronger the 2nd season. An added bonus, every flower appears to have set seed and I am anxiously awaiting the pods to mature.
Thanks PDN for this wonderful find!
