Lily "Stargazer"


"Stargazer" lily - one of the best. This lily always blooms faithfully and it is mostly in shade. I used to grow it in a pot but transplanted it years ago to the ground. It now grows in our little vegetable garden.

This is the kind of fireworks I like in the garden. I remember how wonderful they smell and how horrible they can stain a white shirt.

So beautiful. I agree with comment above about the fireworks.

Thanks so much for sharing your lilies! Our deer may like our lilies more than our hostas -- there were buds on them 2 days and ago and now they are nibbled to stems only. Oh well, at least we can rejoice in yours. Best to you!

Beautiful photo! And is that a bee in the corner of the picture? I don't think I've ever seen a bee visit a lily. Maybe it just landed there for a rest? :)

I have a few of these and I love to bring them inside as cut flowers. They smell wonderful! Yours are great. Any takers on your home yet? Have a great week!

Gah! It's so pretty! I keep saying that I need to plant a few lilies, and this really convinced me. Gorgeous.
