|Liliaceae: Lilium speciosum||
Some stems came up, and flowered, but they had to be moved.
I moved 2 stems. I don't know how they'll do next year.
I bought 4 Stargazer bulbs from T&T for $8.95 and 2 Northern Dazzle bulbs for $11.95. Northern Dazzle is an orienpet, that is, an oriental-trumpet cross.
I planted them in the raised bed, 20 cm deep.
Finally, one plant has come through.
It took a long time but the stem is quite wide.
4 stems through now, I think.
(One is too short to be clearly identified.)
I planted a bulb from the refrigerator labelled from 2000,
but it appeared too dried out to become anything.
I have not been able to find the Acupulco bulb in the basement, so I bought a Stargazer bulb for $3.00 from Shelmerdine's.
I planted it.
Coming through today.
Two nice flowers now.
I forgot to bring the bulb in, so I went digging for it today. The digging was easy, but unfortunately, I could not find the bulb.
I was wrong! I found the bulb in the basement. It’s small and quite dried out, but I’ll keep it and try it.
I packed the bulb in moist vermiculite and put it in the fridge.
I bought an Acapulco bulb at T & T yesterday for $4.75, and planted it today. I dug a big hole, and incorporated peat, fertilizer, and sulphur.
It is coming through.
The first flower is opening today.
There was a heavier frost last night. I dug the bulb, and put it into the basement.
